I think in case of overrun it postpones the deadline (by a period P),
avoiding to execute the task until the end of the current period, right?

I see... This is a different approach to stochastic analysis, which
requires modifications to the scheduler.

In the analysis I mentioned, you still enforce a maximum runtime C every
period P, but C can be smaller than the WCET of the task. If C is larger
than the average execution time, you can use queuing theory to find the
probability to miss a deadline (or, the probability to finish a job in a
time x * P).
