I think the name of cpu_used_mask is confusing since the term "used"
sounds some state of CPU, which is not the case here.  How about
cpu_number_mask?  This is more specific and avoids such confusion.

Otherwise, the change looks good.

  ^^
ps. I had a problem in applying this patch since there was an extra
blank character at the begging of unchanged lines.  But this might be an
issue in my mailer.
