Subject[RFC PATCH 11/11] sched: fair sleepers for timer and interactive
Add FAIR_SLEEPERS_TIMER and FAIR_SLEEPERS_INTERACTIVE tuning knobs.

Turning off FAIR_SLEEPERS and turning on FAIR_SLEEPERS_INTERACTIVE does a pretty
good job for interactivity.

Setting FAIR_SLEEPERS to off helps keeping the min_vruntime value somewhere
between MIN_vruntime and max_vruntime rather than somewhere at the right of all
running threads.
