    If you make the scheduler take steal time into account like Jeremy
    proposed then you schedule on serviced time and the steal time gain is
    proportional to the existing service distribution.

    Still, then you know, then what are you going to do about it? Are you
    going to avoid the hypervisor from scheduling when that one task is
    running?

    What good is knowing something you cannot do anything about.
