Umm.. most of it looks clean. I'm not really sure what the
__cpu_to_node_mask(cpu) macro is supposed to do? it looks to be just an
alias for the __node_to_cpu_mask() macro, which makes little sense to
me. That's the only thing that immediately sticks out. I'm doubly
confused as to why it's defined twice in include/linux/topology.h?
