    Subjectgetcpu after sched_setaffinity
    The attached test program fails on a dual core (and probably SMP) 
    machine on x86-64. Depending on where the thread starts, in one of the
    iterations the sched_setffinity() call succeeds but then sched_getcpu()
    fails to report the correct CPU.

    In set_cpus_allowed migrate_task() is called if the new CPU set does not
    include the current CPU. I hope that migrate_task() also works for

    This leaves the x86-64 vgetcpu() implementation as the weak point. Is
    the caching causing problems? Should migrate_task() make sure the cache
    is reset?

    You need a very recent glibc to compile (glibc-2.5.90-22 in rawhide).
    If this is not available replace the sched_getcpu() call. But make sure
    you pass a pointer to a cache.
