    Is there an upper bound on the number of tasks that can migrate during a
    new idle balance? The reason that I'm asking is because I've been seeing
    some large latency in the new idle path into load_balance().. I'm not
    sure if lots of tasks are getting migrated or if it's just the iteration
    over tasks in the rb-tree ..
