Preempt, and/or occupy cpu space which would otherwise be available for the
root realtime task. If a SCHED_SOFTRR task or tasks share the same queue
with an SCHED_RR task, or occupy a higher queue, runtime of the
SCHED_SOFTRR tasks[s] will have an effect on the root realtime task. OTOH,
if SCHED_SOFTRR queues were below the 'full potency' realtime queues, they
would be able to neither preempt, not round-robin with the root authorized
realtime task.
