We can safely ignore this failure. Can you change the exit line at the
end of tests/linux/gather/test-gather-topology.sh.in into "exit 0",
reconfigure and rerun make check to see if anything else fails?

test-gather-topology.sh and xmlbuffer are veeeeery pedantic. I thought
about ignoring their failure by default in the past because there are
some annoying corner cases where we can't prefectly simulate a remote
topology. Things work almost fine, but you see small differences between
the detailled outputs (XML output here).

In your case, the problem is related to gather-topology.sh not gathering
all the Linux cpuset/cgroup info properly (we would need to parse
/proc/mounts in gather-topology.sh). I will try to fix this in 1.2 (I am
opening a ticket about it). We don't need to delay 1.1 because of this,
so I will ignore the failure.
