As I just mentioned on the TorqueUsers list, I believe that the 
CPUsets implementation in Propack5 is the same as the implementation 
in the 2.6 kernel.

However, what I forgot to mention was that I believe that ProPack5 
includes libraries to manipulate cpusets which are not yet available 
on oss.sgi.com but are LGPL'd.

I have prodded the SGI rep I know locally about this and he says that 
he will chase that down and get them published, but given we don't 
actually own any SGI gear and you do I suspect a customers request 
may carry more weight. :-)
