    I suspect that what's really wanted here is not SCHED_RR but
    guaranteed rate-of-forward progress. A dynamic-window-constrained
    scheduler (that guarantees not that you'll run until you sleep, but
    that in any (settable) time period you'll get the opportunity to run
    for at least (a smaller settable period)) is closer to what's wanted.
