 Thanks. I will look at it later, don't have the time right now.

 I think this is what's happending.

 I was thinking of a function that scans all threads, with cpu_lock held, and
 checks to see if their l_cpu is allowed by their affinity mask, processor
 set or LP_BOUND flag. If not, change l_cpu (or migrate if online), then do a
 broadcast xcall to nullop() if there have been migrations.
 Hmm, shouldn't psets and affinity masks be mutually exclusive?
