    My reviewing doesn't found any bug. however I think original thread have too many guess
    and we need to know reproduce way and confirm it.

    At least, we need three confirms.
    o original issue is still there?
    o DEF_PRIORITY/3 is best value?
    o Current approach have better performance than Wu's original proposal? (below)

    Anyway, please feel free to use my reviewed-by tag.
