I saw the description of the cpuset migration test. Have you wrapped
this in a script suitable for running under usex? If so, I would like
to get a copy. Actually, please send me any automation you have for
this test and I'll incorporate it into the usex load. Meanwhile, I'll
take a cut at adding such a test to the load. However, we know that
your version can provoke the panic, so I'd like to get that.
