Hi Larry,

I have updated the port to build on -CURRENT (commit 6cc600ed7040).

It did define the macros that have been added to sys/cpuset.h, and
the duplicate definitions caused the compilation to fail.

But the port has functional issues. The variable "cpu_subset" in
topology_probe() is only initialized to a non-NULL pointer if the
program is invoked with a -c option, for example.

The port is based on 4 year old upstream sources, which have last
been updated in May of this year.

I'm not going to fix the functional issues of this port now, but
might look into it at a later time.

Regards, STefan
