    We would only set last_cpu IF the process has run for N cycles, where N is
    enough to fill the CPU cache. If 15 cycles loads the cache, then N=15. So in
    that case, B's last_cpu would be set, and it would be tied to that
    processor. The actual value is tunable, and depends largely on the size of
    the L2 cache.
