Not irrelevant to the callers ;)

And Andrew might reasonably choose to prioritize fixes,
depending in part on the impact of what they fix.

Ah - there is one more use of *_complement, in i386/mach-es7000.
But it masks the result in the next line with cpu_online_map, so
also avoids propogating the damage.
