    You shouldn't need to. You can tune "slice" by adjusting
    sched_latency_ns and sched_min_granularity_ns, but note that "slice" is
    not a fixed quantum. Also note that CFS preemption decisions are based
    upon instantaneous state. A task may have received a full (variable)
    "slice" of CPU time, but preemption will be triggered only if a more
    deserving task is available, so a "slice" is not the "max uninterrupted
    CPU time" that you may expect it to be.. but it is somewhat similar.
