That depends entirely on the algorithm used, and that's where my patches
differ from the main kernel tree. In the main kernel tree, you need to
accumulate about one second worth of sleep before being elevated one priority
(woefully long), and use up one second before dropping. Mine is non linear so
it's not a simple relationship.
