Subject: Re: [hwloc-devel] dynamic cpuset_t?

Hello,

Just to give my personal opinion: having another ABI shouldn't hurt
if we put the cpuset size in the soname for instance. In comparison,
having to use functions that allocate/free cpusets like I've done for
the AIX and OSF is a bit tedious (those don't have the choice, they have
to preserve a stable ABI).
