TA? Target Address? Target Affinity? Timing Advance? Terrible Acronym?

So instead of fixing the emission of a sync command on a non-mapped
collection, you hack set_affinity? It doesn't feel like the right
thing to do.

It is also worth noticing that mapping an LPI to a collection that is
not mapped yet is perfectly legal.

Now you're completely ignoring cpu_mask which constraints the NUMA
affinity. On some systems, this ends up with a deadlock (Cavium TX1,
if I remember well).

Wouldn't it be better to just return that the affinity setting request
is impossible to satisfy? And more to the point, how comes we end-up
in such a case?



Jazz is not dead, it just smell funny.
