One can certainly handle the general case, by explicitly
listing the selected CPUs.

The trade off is in finding a middle path, that is sufficiently
general for most cases, but still easier to use than the brute
force listing the selected CPUs.

I am open to adding a cpuset command option for that middle
path, but I will probably need more inspiration to discover
a good option, and more real life feedback to know what will
be most useful.

Yes - exposing "locality information" is the half of this
puzzle.  I wish I had been able to spend more time on this
