Here is a patch for this...

Allow specification of CPUs in rps to be done with a vector instead of a bit map.  This allows relative weighting of CPUs in the map by repeating ones to give higher weight.

For example "echo 0 0 0 3 4 4 4 4 > /sys/class/net/eth0/queues/rx-0/rps_cpus"

assigns CPUs 0, 3, and 4 to the RPS mask with relative weights 3, 1, and 4 respectively.
