> preemptContainerPreCheck() in FSParentQueue rejects preemption requests if the parent
queue is below fair share. This can cause a delay in converging towards fairness when the
starved leaf queue and the queue above fairshare belong under a non-root parent queue(ie their
least common ancestor is a parent queue which is not root).
> Here is an example :
> root.parent has fair share = 80% and usage = 80%
> root.parent.child1 has fair share =40% usage = 80%
> root.parent.child2 has fair share=40% usage=0%
> Now a job is submitted to child2 and the demand is 40%.
> Preemption will kick in and try to reclaim all the 40% from child1.
> When it preempts the first container from child1,the usage of root.parent will become
<80%, which is less than root.parent's fair share,causing preemption to stop.So only one
container gets preempted in this round although the need is a lot more. child2 would eventually
get to half its fair share but only after multiple rounds of preemption.
> Solution is to remove preemptContainerPreCheck() in FSParentQueue and keep it only in
FSLeafQueue(which is already there).
