it is not ensured.

None. (well, except on base-linux where Linux performs the balancing)

The general idea is that the balancing is not a concern for the base
system but should be solved at a higher level. E.g., when assigning
multiple CPUs to a VM, the guest OS will do the balancing. In a similar
way, noux could in principle spawn processes on different CPUs while
monitoring CPU usage (e.g., via core's trace service).
