How to Use Projects to Assign, Modify, and Remove Multi-CPU Binding

Use multi-CPU binding (MCB) to bind a project to a specific set of CPUs, but not bind the CPUs exclusively. MCB allows other processes to use those CPUs as well. Use MCB to assign overlapping partitions to processes. When a process is bound to MCB, the set of CPUs bound by MCB must reside in the pool that the process is bound to. If there is a project.pool entry, that is used. If there is no project.pool entry, processes are bound to the default pool of the target zone.
