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. :-)
