    Just a small example,


    * Kernel threads bound to a single CPU can safely use
    * smp_processor_id():
    this_mask = cpumask_of_cpu(this_cpu);

    if (cpus_equal(current->cpus_allowed, this_mask))
    goto out;

    This is not true with CONFIG_HOTPLUG_CPU. This becomes true if we freeze
    the kernel threads from CPU_DOWN_PREPARE to CPU_DEAD.
