currently bound to a to be temporarily removed CPU?

That sounds reasonable and I'm sure could be implemented
with the original patch.

cpuset affect other cpu sets?

cpusets can already do this adding another mechanism for it too that
needs to be checked in fast paths would seem somewhat redundant?
