Do you have workloads in other control groups causing cache allocations?

One of the ways this stuff can be built is for the cache to use the policy to choose which
lines to evict. The cache may already have some LRU or line-state preferences when it
comes to eviction, so it may not apply the RDT policy as the first choice.

If there is no cache pressure from outside the control group - does it matter how quickly
it takes to apply?
