This is not what I would consider as optimization. For vast majority
of users this check is useless because they know for sure that
cpumasks are different.

For this case I can invent something like cpumask_and_check_eq(), so
that there'll be minimal impact on user code. (Suggestions for a better
name are very welcome.)

Thanks,
Yury
