[RFC] Multiprocessor Control Interfaces (update)

A new version of my proposed multiprocessor control interfaces
is available here:


This version has some fixes and documentation updates and
incorporates some of the recent suggestions that I've received.
Here's the latest help output from run:

Set scheduling parameters and CPU bias for a new process or a list
of existing processes.

OPTIONS can be one or more of the following options:

   -b, --bias=LIST Set the CPU bias to the LIST of CPUs;
                          CPUs are numbered starting from 0
   -s, --policy=POLICY Set the scheduling policy to POLICY
   -P, --priority=LEVEL Set the scheduling priority to LEVEL
   -q, --quantum=QUANTUM Set the SCHED_RR quantum to QUANTUM
   -N, --negate Negate the CPU bias list; all CPUs
                          except those listed will be selected
   -f, --fork Fork COMMAND and return immediately
   -V, --version Output version information and exit
   -v, --verbose Output information before each action
   -h, --help Display this help and exit

PROCESS_SPECIFIER is exactly one of the following options:

   -p, --pid=LIST Specify LIST of existing PIDs to modify
   -g, --group=LIST Specify LIST of process groups to modify; all
                          existing processes in the groups will be modified
   -u, --user=LIST Specify LIST of users to modify; all existing
                          processes owned by the users will be modified
   -n, --name=LIST Specify LIST of existing process names to modify

Multiple comma separated values can be specified for all LISTs and ranges
are allowed where appropriate (e.g. "run -b 0,2-5 autopilot").

See the run(1) man page for more information.

Take care,

Jason Baietto
