    Exactly. I said something similar in my earlier reply.
    But not the same. Andrew nailed it.

    And the bitmap code should provide that conversion code,
    since cpumask is just (soon, I hope ;) a thin layer on

    And there might be bitop or byteorder arch specific code
    beneath that.

    I won't rest till it's the best ...
