Yeah - Garrick were looking at the docs in 2.6.24-rc2 about this on my
laptop at SC07 when we were brainstorming the ideas about how to do

There can be benefits from locking processes to CPUs, some of our guys
have hacked in their own setaffinity() support on Opteron boxes and
found a sizeable performance improvement from it (from memory I think
about 10%, but YMMV).
So basically it can be a win on NUMA systems, but may not matter so
much on current Intel AMD64 clones.
