I may be confused, but shouldn't it be mask >>= 1 instead?

rnp->wakemask is the unioned rdp->grpmask of the cpu(s) for which we woke that
node thread up. Those mask start from 0, so what you want with the below
check is to watch if the next CPU in group range is in the wakeup mask by shifting
to the right.

No?
