Using taskset, the ip command now takes a little longer to complete.

Since we always use the same set of CPUs, I assume using a mask (for 0 & 1, just use 0x3, as the man suggests) might be a tiny of a fraction faster to execute taskset with, instead of the need to translate the numeric CPU list.
However, the real concern is making sure CPUs 0 & 1 are not really too busy with stuff (including interrupt handling, etc.)
