I bet it's just the placement of "init_idle()" in init/main.c, which is
unrelated to the scheduling proper, but if the kernel thread is started
before the boot CPU has done its "init_idle()", then the scheduler state
isn't really set up fully yet.

(Old bug, I think its been there for a long time, I just think that the
old scheduler didn't much care, and the "child runs first" logic in
particular of the new scheduler probably just showed it more clearly)
