The patch that you sent to Rajan didn't yield any improvement on
specjappserver so we did not include that in the ols paper. What
is described in the ols paper is "calling load-balance" from
try-to-wake-up. Both calling load-balance from try-to-wakeup and
the "light push" rebalance at try_to_wake_up are already done in
Andrea's 0(1) scheduler patch.
