    This is what I was thinking when I wrote earlier that EEVDF expects each
    task will specify "length of each new request"

    The other observation that I have of EEVDF is that it tries to be fair
    in the virtual time scale (each client will get 'wi' real units in 1
    virtual unit), whereas sometimes fairness in real-time scale also matters?
    For ex: a multi-media app would call scheduler fair to it, it it recvs
    atleast 1 ms cpu time every 10 *real* milleseconds (frame-time). A rogue
    user (or workload) that does a fork bomb may skew this fairness for that
    multi-media app in real-time scale under EEVDF?
