    But it seems the kernel does what users doesn't want.
    threads which is tightly coupled to some cpu has some important meanings for
    the userk.
    If the apps are sophisticated as you say, cpus_allowed containes other cpus
    before hotplug. As SIGSTOP/KILL patch I posted, the apps shouldn't do unexpected
    work, I think.
