    Yeah, pulling the intended recipient makes fine sense. If he doesn't
    preempt you, you can try to swap vruntimes or whatever makes arithmetic
    sense and will help. Dunno how you tell him how long he can keep the
    cpu though, and him somehow going back home needs to be a plain old
    migration, no fancy restoration of ancient history vruntime.
