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 ..
