SubjectRe: [PATCH] cpuset code prevents binding tasks to new cpus

NAQ

While this seems sensible on systems not using cpusets (but still using
kernels configured for cpusets), it is surprising on systems using
cpusets, on which one expects the cpuset that a task is in to reflect
the cpus that a task is allowed to use.

A long time ago, this code actually had cpu_possible_map here, not
cpu_online_map. That was changed, in the patch:

[Patch] cpusets interoperate with hotplug online maps

Lets discuss this further. See further my previous reply to Anton.
