I haven't checked what happens yet, but down the line we also set 
affinity for service cores as well as interrupt thread. what would be 
the semantics of those in this particular case? do we want the same 
ability for service cores (i.e. pick a non-affinitized core)? And where 
does interrupt thread affinitize in this case (presumably, nowhere too)?
