It's fine to criticise sched_yield(). I agree that new apps should
generally be written to use proper completion mechanisms or to wait for
specific events.

However, there are closed-source and/or frozen-source apps where it's
not practical to rewrite or rebuild the app. Does it make sense to
break the behaviour of all of these?
