Subject[PATCH 29/31] cpumask: implement cpumask_parse()
Date
We have cpulist_parse() but not cpumask_parse().  Implement it using
bitmap_parse().

bitmap_parse() is weird in that it takes @len for a string in
kernel-memory which also is inconsistent with bitmap_parselist().
Make cpumask_parse() calculate the length and don't expose the
inconsistency to cpumask users. Maybe we can fix up bitmap_parse()
later.

This will be used to expose workqueue cpumask knobs to userland via
sysfs.

Rusty, if this looks okay to you, would it be okay for me to route it
together with the rest of workqueue changes?

Thanks.
