Hmm, I see. First I think we should move the set_cpus_allowed_ptr() to
sqthread creation place not when it is running(not sure why it is
currently at the beginning of sqthred itself), then we can have
consistent behaviour.(if we do the check at sqthread's running time,
then no matter we kill it or still allow it to run when cpu_online
check fails, it's hard to let users know the result of their cpu binding
since users don't know the exact time when sqthread waken up and begin
to run, so that they can check their cpu binding result).
Second, I think users' cpu binding is a kind of 'advice', not 'command'.
So no matter cpu_online check succeeds or fails, we still let sqthread
run, meanwhile return the cpu binding result to the userspace.
Anyway, I'd like to know Jens' thoughts on this.
