the way i understand it is set_cpus_allowed() that is the concept of cpus_allowed
has been a long standing internal kernel space interface to cpu bitmask.
used by the scheduler in sched.c define in /linux/sched.h

the new syscall sched_setaffinity() is in <sched.c> not /linux/schedule.c
which implies it is to be used from user space i think.
