    Yeah, the condition "cpu < 0" could be removed since we have no
    that kind of caller.

    But another point is like I said before:
    'cpumask_test_cpu(cpu, &p->cpus_allowed)' doesn't equal to
    'p->rt.nr_cpus_allowed > 1' because we could have bounded
    So the condition 'if (cpumask_test_cpu(cpu, &p->cpus_allowed))'
    in Hillf's patch is not sufficient.


    Only stand for myself
