    I'm not sure if I understand you correctly, but how is this related to
    preempt? A SCHED_FIFO tasks only delays SCHED_OTHER tasks, but it doesn't
    consume their time slice, so the remaining tasks still get their
    (previously assigned) time at the cpu, until all tasks have consumed
    their share.
