python-linux-procfs: Add per process flags
Last modified: 2008-09-03 15:18:01 EDT
Description of problem:
To check that a thread is bound to a processor we need the PF_THREAD_BOUND flag defined somewhere, other flags such as PF_KERNEL_THREAD are also useful, so add all the flags into the pidstats class, that is where we store the data read from /proc/<PID>/stat, where the flags are made available to userspace.
This will be used by the new tuna version, so that we don't mess with percpu kernel threads SMP affinity masks.
