Simple answer? No. At least not meaningfully.

If you do:

cpu = fictitious_get_my_cpu();
if (cpu == last_cpu()) {

There's no guarantee that jack doesn't switch cpu's from when it found out
what CPU it was on to doing the calculation. So it would be easier to pin

(apt-get schedutils)

man 1 taskset

or if you modify the code:

mn 2 sched_setaffinity
