Hmm... the cost of selecting a cluster is cheap. It is called from a setup code
that should not be fast. Why not keep it?.. Well in case the data would show it
worth it.

What seems worthy though is sticking to the cluster which is currently in use
and at least one of its CPUs is still in the mask.
