Subjectcpu_exclusive feature of cpuset broken?
Hello,
I was testing cpuset in 2.6.16-rc6 and found that I cant create
exclusive cpusets. As soon as I make a cpuset exclusive, it locks up.
Basically here's what I did to see the lockup:

# mkdir /dev/cpuset
# mount -t cpuset none /dev/cpuset
# cd /dev/cpuset
# mkdir a
# /bin/echo 7 > cpus
# /bin/echo 1 > cpu_exclusive
<System locks up here>

I saw this problem on two machines (4way x86-64 box and another 8way x86 box)
but didnt see the lockup on another 4way x86 box. I am puzzled. Before
I start digging further, wanted to check if anyone else has seen the
problem.

When the lockup happened on x86-64 box, NMI watchdog caught it and
spit these messages:
