it's also worth knowing that sched_setaffinity does all the work (not much!).
for most normal systems, setting affinity (especially to a single core)
is probably going to have bad effects some times.  for instance, interrupt
handling.  which has a similar bitmask-based interface like 
	echo 1 > /proc/irq/0/smp_affinity

I've wondered whether this makes sense to do on opteron systems where 
the IO bridge is attached to a single socket.
