    SubjectRe: current linux-2.6.git: cpusets completely broken

    Well, I decided to just take the plunge and test it. It WorksForMe(tm), so
    it's no _totally_ broken. But I really didn't test it except to see that
    it still booted, and I don't use cpusets and never saw the original bug,
    of course.

    But considering how simple it is, if it works for people as a way to work
    around stupid CPU migration issues due to subtle wakeup calls, I'd almost
    prefer to really solve this whole issue with that cpu_active_map thing.

    It's so simple it should be really _robust_ in the presense of problems
    elsewhere (like the whole cpusets scheduling domain mess).

    Assuming I didn't do anythign stupid, of course, which is why it would
    definitely need much more testing. And especially if Vegard can test it
    with the case that oopsed for him due to the bad migration..
