eudev only seem to use affinity to get
a hint on the number of cpus and set the
max number of worker children accordingly
(a sensible default value will work for this)

and libudev has a 'cpu_set_malloc' api
which uses affinity to get the right cpu
set size, but it is never used
(dummy api will work)

so affinity does not seem to be essential for eudev
