It's not bad as is, except for ultrafast mode. START_DEBIT is the
biggest problem there. I don't think SCHED_OTHER will ever match
SCHED_BATCH for this load, though I must say I haven't full-spectrum
tested. This load really wants RR scheduling, and wakeup preemption
necessarily perturbs run order.

I'll probably piddle with it some more, it's an interesting load.
