    Stupid task. If task wants to run on -all- cpus on a
    hotplug system, task should not pass a saved mask, but
    rather construct a mask with all bits set and pass that:

    cpu_set_t mask;
    unsigned int i;

    /* set all bits in mask - code totally untested */
    for (i = 0; i < sizeof(cpu_set_t) / sizeof (__cpu_mask); i++)
    mask.__bits[i] = ~0;


    Similar problems exist for a task running in a cpuset under
    migration. Saved masks are useless in all but static systems,
    having no migration, no hotplug.

    That, or use a library on top of this that lets the task work
    with relative (to whatever is available) CPU and (for the
    mbind/mempolicy calls) Memory Node numbers and that handles
    the above details. If all goes well, I should be releasing
    such a library in the not distant future.

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
