To clarify - when you say "last dequeue of a sleeping task happens"
above, you're referring to the dequeue of the last task running on the
CPU, correct? I.e. the CPU is about to go idle?

It's been a while since I've looked at this area so would like to hold
off for a rebased version to review in further detail. But I think the
concept is valid.

thanks,
steve
