Subject: [PATCH v6 0/3] sched, net: NUMA-aware CPU spreading interface

Hi folks,

Tariq pointed out in [1] that drivers allocating IRQ vectors would benefit
from having smarter NUMA-awareness (cpumask_local_spread() doesn't quite cut

The proposed interface involved an array of CPUs and a temporary cpumask, and
being my difficult self what I'm proposing here is an interface that doesn't
require any temporary storage other than some stack variables (at the cost of
one wild macro).



v5 -> v6

o Simplified iterator macro (Andy)
o Cleaned up sched_numa_hop_mask (Andy, Yury)
o Applied Yury's RB tags 

v4 -> v5

o Rebased onto 6.1-rc1
o Ditched the CPU iterator, moved to a cpumask iterator (Yury)

v3 -> v4

o Rebased on top of Yury's bitmap-for-next
o Added Tariq's mlx5e patch
o Made sched_numa_hop_mask() return cpu_online_mask for the NUMA_NO_NODE &&
  hops=0 case

v2 -> v3

o Added for_each_cpu_and() and for_each_cpu_andnot() tests (Yury)
o New patches to fix issues raised by running the above

o New patch to use for_each_cpu_andnot() in sched/core.c (Yury)

v1 -> v2

o Split _find_next_bit() @invert into @invert1 and @invert2 (Yury)
o Rebase onto v6.0-rc1
