Currently (and this is not changing anytime soon), the only way of
using different schedulers for different domains is by means of

I.e., you create, for instance, an RTDS pool, and a Credit or Credit2
pool. In the RTDS pool, you put the RT domains, so the IC domain and
the driver domains, and you subdivide resources between them according
to the utilization and latency requirements that each one of them has.

You then put all the non-RT domains in the other pool, and you control
their behavior via weighs, cap, pinning (etc).

Of course, this is just an example, and whether or not it is the best
way of going, as well as the specific parameters, really depends on the
characteristics of your platform and of your workload.

Trying to reason on as detailed as possible scenario, and then actually
testing and benchmarking every envisioned solution, is the only way to
actually tell what will work best.

As I said in the other email, I'm more than up discussing this, either
via email or in person (e.g., at the Summit).
