I assume from this that you initially sent the email privately to
Peter&Ingo, then forwarded it to the list without cc'ing Peter&Ingo.
So if they're already responded to the inital email, I'm wasting my
time. Ho hum.

That's a great bug report - fully bisected and it includes a testcase.
Thanks.

However I think your testcase is buggy. You have main() racing against
print_affinity(). If a sub-thread runs print_affinity() before main()
has run set_threadaffinity(), print_affinity() will obviously print
main()'s affinity.

Between 2.6.18 and 2.6.35-rc3 the timing changed a bit - in the later
kernel the sub-threads are running before main() is able to change
their affinity. In the earlier kernel the sub-threads run first.

In both kernels, all CPU consumption is on CPU 0 as desired.

Re-enabling the sleep(1) in threadCode() fixes the print_affinity()
output, confirming that it's a userspace race.
