taskset is more low level than cpuset. You won't be able to "evade" from a cpuset with taskset. But if you don't use cpuset (or cgroups), taskset should work just fine.

Here is how I do with cpuset :

mkdir /dev/cpuset
mount -t cpuset cpuset /dev/cpuset
cd /dev/cpuset

# All system process on CPU 7
mkdir system
cd system
echo 7 > cpus
echo 0 > mems
while read i; do /bin/echo $i; done < ../tasks > tasks cd ..
for i in $(seq 0 7); do

    mkdir cpu$i
    cd cpu$i
    echo $i > cpus
    echo 0 > mems
    cd ..


# Stud on CPU 3-6
for pid in $(pidof $PID); do
 echo $pid > /dev/cpuset/cpu$(($i + 3))/tasks  i=$(( ($i+1) % 4))

At the end, just check that the process is properly pined down to wanted CPU with /proc/PID/status:

Cpus_allowed_list: 5
