Subject[PATCH] __bitmap_parselist: fix bug in empty string handling
Date
bitmap_parselist("", &mask, nmaskbits) will erroneously set bit
zero in the mask. The same bug is visible in cpumask_parselist()
since it is layered on top of the bitmask code, e.g. if you boot with
"isolcpus=", you will actually end up with cpu zero isolated.

The bug was introduced in commit 4b060420a596 ("bitmap, irq: add
smp_affinity_list interface to /proc/irq") when bitmap_parselist()
was generalized to support userspace as well as kernelspace.
