    Yes, if a) the thread was asleep when it was woken up and b) if the
    scheduler does the right thing and wakes the thread on the CPU which
    called wake_up().

    The ongoing sagas of tbench/mysql/volanomark regressions make me think
    that any behaviour which we "expect" of the scheduler should be
    triple-checked daily :(
