Sorry, I fixed that up and running tests now.

By the way, may be you decided to not run the jitter on CPU0 just because on
some systems, CPU0 does not have an 'online' file? In this case, the grep may
throw errors I guess which troubles the script.

>From the old cpu hotplug docs, I found that if CONFIG_BOOTPARAM_HOTPLUG_CPU0
or cpu0_hotplug boot command line option is not passed, then cpu0 cannot be
offlined in which case, presumably the 'online' file will be missing, like
some systems I am testing on.

thanks,
