I'm not seeing that, so at point (A) we've completely switched over from
@prev to @p, we've put all pse until the common parent and set all se
back to @p.

So if we then do: put_prev_task_fair(rq, p), we simply undo all the
set_next_entity(se) we just did, and continue from the common parent
upwards.

But the abort is only done after we've completely set up @p as the
current task.

Yes, completely tearing it down again is probably a waste, but given
that bandwidth enforcement should be rare and I didn't want to
complicate things even further for rare cases.

Oh, so we allow a parent to have less runtime than the sum of all its
children?

Indeed, in that case we can miss something... we could try to call
check_cfs_rq_runtime() from the initial top-down selection loop? When
true, just put the entire stack and don't pretend to be smart?
