SubjectRe: [PATCH] Process pinning
In message <> you write:

Call me old fashioned, but I prefer my bitmasks in hex.

Please also consider changing:

c = goodness(prev, this_cpu, prev->active_mm);
next = prev;


if (prev & (1 << this_cpu)) {
c = goodness(prev, this_cpu, prev->active_mm);
next = prev;
Otherwise, you will keep scheduling a RT process forever on a
disallowed CPU on which it is already running. And even a non-RT
process will stick on its disallowed CPU as long as nothing else runs

Learnt this the hard way from the hotplug CPU patch...
Premature optmztion is rt of all evl. --DK
