Why is taskset still not in util-linux?

Of course.  AFAICT taskset does not need the syscall, it just needs the
library call to work.  Asking about the syscall is, I suppose, a kind of Linux
shorthand to see if something is supported on the particular platform.  Mark's
suggestion of providing a fake definition of that syscall definition is a
workaround that may disturb the util-linux sources the least.
