cpuset: don't allocate trial cpuset on stack
Impact: cleanups, reduce stack usage This patch prepares for the next patch. When we convert cpuset.cpus_allowed to cpumask_var_t, (trialcs = *cs) no longer works. Another result of this patch is reducing stack usage of trialcs. sizeof(*cs) can be as large as 148 bytes on x86_64, so it's really not good to have it on stack.
