    Well, one of Con's patches caused a lot of idle time on volanomark.
    The reason for the change was unclear. I guess either a fairness or
    wakeup latency change (yes, it was a very scientific process, ahem).

    Anyway, in the process of looking at the load balancing, we found
    and fixed a problem (although it might now possibly over balance).
    This did cure most of the idle problems.

    So it could just be small changes causing things to go out of whack.
    I will try to get better data after (if ever) the thing is working
    nicely on the desktop.
