I don't think the question makes sense. Changes in the filesystem affect
processes, not cores. Processes are aware of filesystem changes as soon as
they do some filesystem related system call, like stat(), readdir() or
read() over an inotify "watch descriptor", irrespective of the core in
which  they are running at the moment of the system call.
