    I don't know if this'll make sense, but I think this has to
    be a ~fuzzy suggestion to the kernel. There are so many
    variables that you can't predict what the kernel will run
    into. For example, with my favorite test, sometimes tasks
    do something nasty, like all deciding to do the same things
    at once and thereby jerking a _knot_ in the vm's tail.
