Actually it doesn’t. Since CPU affinity was included (IIRC in 2.6.16) it
is much less prone to move tasks, and the performance impact of not
using CPU pinning is small.

Still, it is better to use CPU pinning since you often want finer
control than that, and that’s especially true in multi-user environments
where resources can be sub-host.
