OK, I removed the duplicate checks.

Or I can do the whole operation with the task not queued.
Not sure yet what approach I'll take...

That would be nice. Unfortunately, EXPORT_SYMBOL() does
not seem to work right from sched_fair.c, which is included
from sched.c instead of being built from the makefile!

Good question. I don't know.
