I believe (and I might be wrong here) that there are premade lgrps that
correspond to precise processors. In another life here at Oracle I've
used OpenSolaris plgrp command to bind processes to lgrps that contained
specific processors. This is what led me to believe that
using lgrp_affinity_set() might help in being able to bind to multiple

Unfortunately I don't have the exact particulars to give you. If I get
some time in the next couple weeks I'll see if I can come up with some
