Tough.

Think of it this way: it is predictable. They get predictably moved when
moving is cheap and easy. It's about _performance_.

Do you know when TLB misses happen? They are unpredictable. Do you know
when the OS sends IPI's around? Do you know when scheduling happens?

No you don't. So stop whining.
