Although it's ugly ... that format seems to have been adopted in
generic code ... here's the code from drivers/base/node.c to
display the bitmap of cpus that belong to a node:

        for (k = 0; k < sizeof(cpumask_t)/sizeof(u16); ++k) {
                int j = sprintf(buf, "%04hx", (u16)cpus_coerce(tmp));
                len += j;
                buf += j;
                cpus_shift_right(tmp, tmp, 16);

There should be some consistency in how bitmaps from cpumask_t
get displayed, but it would also be nice if the 'write' interfaces
to settable cpumasks used the same format that the 'read'
interfaces printed.  E.g. I might want to do:

 # cat /sys/devices/system/node/node0/cpumap > /proc/irq/prof_cpu_mask
