    Sorry, I thought the smp_tune_scheduling() call went lost during the
    transition to the new cpu boot scheme. But it's there. And the problem
    is indeed "notsc". So you'll have to fix it, I can't.

    If you set the cache_decay_ticks to something non-zero, you should
    _really_ do this for all the scheduler tests, otherwise your measurements
    will not be comparable.
