Nah, the way I see it it is a kernel problem. The right fix for the
problem in my eyes would be if the kernel cpu controller would be split
into two: one that manages rt time slices (and is never used by
default), and one that manages CPU shares for normally scheduled
processes (which is what sytsemd would use).
My take on this:

The problem is that in systemd we'd like to manage CPU shares for normal
processes, but cannot realistically manage CPU shares for RT
processes. However as the kernel cpu cgroup controller is written right
now, you either have to do both, or neither. And that I believe is very
much broken and should not be tried to worked around but fixed on the
