Thanks for the explanation Tim, the work on the server kernel is much appreciated!

I'm a bit disappointed that the standard kernel will lack cpuset support though, looks like I'll need to stick to rolling my own mainline kernels on my desktop systems which I work on cpuset dependent code on to avoid this regression from previous Ubuntu releases.

With more and more cores being availble on modern desktop systems (mine has 4) I believe I can see other use cases such as audio processing where people might appreciate being able to migrate all the system processes onto a single core and have the rest untouched for their user processes.
