IIUC you're suggesting to introduce an iterator for the cpumasks first, and
then maybe add one on top for the individual cpus.

I'm happy to do that, though I have to say I'm keen to keep the CPU
iterator - IMO the complexity is justified if it is centralized in one
location and saves us from boring old boilerplate code.

I haven't found a way to do this that doesn't involve a struct - apparently
you can't mix types in a for loop declaration clause.
