Ah, PREFER_SIBLING means prefer sibling domain, not sibling thread. Its
set at the CPU (really socket) level so make tasks spread over sockets
first, so that there is no competition for the socket wide resources.

Your change is sane, but we really want a more extensive sched domain
tree in the near future, reflecting the full machine topology.
