Hm so without cluster information (e.g. DT system), we have
->cluster_id=-1, we'll essentially copy the package mask into the cluster

The exposed cluster mask is still <= package mask which is sensible. Are we
fine with that, or do we need/want the mask to be empty in the -1 case? I'm
guessing userspace tools should check for either id!=-1 or if the exclusive
disjucntion of cluster vs package masks is non-empty.
