in this particular case we can clearly separate the two workloads
though: CPU-overload (Ken's benchmark) vs. half-load (3-task tbench). So
by checking for migration target/source idleness we can have a hard
separator for wakeup balancing. (whether it works out for both types of
workloads remains to be seen)
