Is it the whole concept of isolating one or more cpus from all normal
kernel tasks that you don't like, or just this particular implementation?

I ask because I know of at least one project that would have used this
capability had it been available. As it stands they have to live with
the usual kernel threads running on the cpu that they're trying to
dedicate to their app.
