Actually the timeslice handed out is purely dependent on the static priority,
not the priority it is elevated or demoted to by the interactivity estimator.
However lower priority tasks (cpu bound ones if the estimator has worked
correctly) will always be preempted by higher priority tasks (interactive
ones) whenever they wake up.
