Err... note that now cpuset_{down,up}() take semaphore as a parameter,
but use global cpuset_sem_{owner,depth} to track recursion. This, I
believe, is an inconsistent API---it only works for a single semaphore
as passing different @psem's would lead to deadlocks and meaningless
owner and depth.

What about making these functions

static void cpuset_{down,up}(void);

operating on cpuset_sem internally?
