Genode affinity, multi-core separation and service encapsulation (core inferences)

CPU balancing is pretty easy to manage at a higher level. For example,
the Nim runtime balances additional Genode threads automatically,
because the common high-level case is to create a thread pool for each
CPU and push jobs to it. In other cases I assume that a thread will
be blocked or block an external component, and running components on
multiple CPUs only comes with the performance cost of communicating
across multiple CPUs.
