    I agree with Avi. I'd be inclined to investigate further to see if
    there are any important workloads on which it's not a win - and then
    add the extra complexity to control it from cpusets if necessary.
    Unless there's really a good reason to make it configurable, it's
    simpler to make it unconditional.
