if this is what is done by your patch, then we do not want to do this.
My patch does not give an advantage of CPU-intensive processes over that
of eg. 'vi'. Perhaps i'm misreading your patch, it's full of branches that
does not make the meaning very clear, cpu_jtime and sched_jtime are not
explained. Is sched_jtime the timestamp of the last schedule of this
process? And is cpu_jtime the number of jiffies spent on this CPU? Is
cpu_jtime cleared if we switch to another CPU?
