    And if it wasn't that this would result in requiring every call to
    specify the number of bits, resulting in one more chance for a stupid
    error, and one less for type checking, I'd vote to remove
    cpumask_t/nodemask_t, as I understand you would prefer.

    One should resist infrastructure if one can nuke a layer entirely.

    But half-baked layers introduce one more form of difficult to
    remember inconsistency.

    Hmmm ...
