Hmm i submitted a patch
(http://groups.google.ca/group/fa.linux.kernel/browse_frm/thread/ec079d77dc1f6e80/edf10a39eede6246?tvc=1&q=Remove+p$
to remove those superfluous schedules, but perhaps it hasn't hit Linus'
tree yet via Davej.

Perhaps we need something like the following (untested), basically allow a
small window and if we migrate within that window, simply fail. This
should be fine as during hotplug notification that processor won't be
going offline as we hold the cpucontrol semaphore and during normal
operation without hotplug cpu the processor won't be going offline anyway.
Have i missed a special case? One thing i don't like about this approach
is that it relies on the driver writer to get this logic correct, higher
up might be better.
