SubjectRe: [PATCH] set_cpus_allowed() for 2.4
Hi Marcelo,

now that all vendors ship a backport of Ingo's O(1) scheduler, external
projects like XFS have to track those trees in addition to the mainline kernel.

Having the common new APIs available in mainline would be a very good thing
to have for us and others. Now that 2.4.20 already has a working yield()
the biggest missing part is set_cpus_allowed() to limit (kernel-)threads
to a specific CPU or set of CPUs.
