Missing {}'s ?

already checked task_running(rq, p) || task_has_rt_policy(p) w/ rq lock
held.

seems like you could condense to save an update_rq_clock() call at least,
don't know if the info_queued, info_dequeued need to be updated

Should these details all be in sched_fair? Seems like the wrong layer
here. And would that condition go the other way? If new vruntime is
smaller than min, then it becomes new cfs_rq->min_vruntime?

Can delta go negative?
