    an IPI creates quite some overhead both on the source and on the target
    CPU, so i think it's definitely worth this extra check. Also, with
    increasingly higher load it's increasingly more likely that we can skip
    the IPI (because the task might be on the runqueue but it is not
    executing), so further increasing the load via additional IPIs is the
    wrong answer.
