I'm not sure where it comes from, but when starting a VM, the task log 
receives a bunch of messages on changed affinity:

pid 95121's current affinity list: 0-7
pid 95121's new affinity list: 2,3
pid 95122's current affinity list: 0-7
pid 95122's new affinity list: 2,3
pid 95123's current affinity list: 0-7
pid 95123's new affinity list: 2,3
pid 95184's current affinity list: 0-7
pid 95184's new affinity list: 2,3
pid 95185's current affinity list: 0-7
pid 95185's new affinity list: 2,3
pid 95187's current affinity list: 0-7
pid 95187's new affinity list: 2,3

Can we avoid showing them? I don't think they offer any insight, because 
as I understand it, when starting, the current affinity list is always 
all available cores.

A new type is created called 'pve-cpuset' so that the cpuset can go through some validation before passing it to the taskset command. The exec_taskset command is executed just after the 'post-start' hookscript, which ensures that there is a valid PID to pin.
The commit message should be above the lines :)
Otherwise, it won't be part of the commit, but only a comment visible on 
the mailing list.

BTW, my colleagues will also review your code at some point, so be 
prepared that there might be some more required changes
