Attended to.

There have been improvements since the earlier iterations but it's still a
fairness based design. Mike's "sticking point" test case should be improved
as well.

My call based on my own testing and feedback from users is:

Under niced loads it is 99% in favour of SD.

Under light loads it is 95% in favour of SD.

Under Heavy loads it becomes proportionately in favour of mainline. The
crossover is somewhere around a load of 4.

If the reluctance to renice X goes away I'd say it was 99% across the board
and to much higher loads.
