Release Notes: The major new feature of this release is the ability to bind processes to specific (core,socket) sets. Specifically, PLPA allows the binding specification to be specified in terms of cores and sockets (vs. Linux virtual processor IDs). Binding to (core,socket) tuples is available through both the C API and the "plpa-taskset" command-line executable.
Release Notes: The ability to understand (socket,core) tuples for specific process placement was added, as opposed to just specifying Linux virtual processor IDs. The plpa-taskset executable was also added, which understands the same command line syntax as the "taskset" command, but also understands (core@socket) nomenclature.
