    I have done this, and I am currently re-writing it from scratch, for 2.2 is the URL for the old
    is currently undergoing a complete from-scratch rewrite, with new features.

    Features do/will include:
    new system call sysmp (compatible with SGI)
    library wrappers for bind_to_cpu() (digital UNIX)
    library wrappers for processor_bind() (Sun? - who uses this?)
    Restrict processors from running general processes
    lock a process to a processor, or set of processors
    remove a processor from general use, and lock it to a single process
    (and it's children)
    disable a processor from scheduling any processes

    does this sound like what you want ?
