That would result in not rescheduling when current and p are
on the same runqueue, in effect making yield_to a noop for the
easiest case...

When rq != p_rq, we need to ensure both get rescheduled.

We want to have current not run right now (because it is waiting
on a resource that's not available), and we do want p to run.

I'm about to fall over, so I'll go to sleep now.

I can send a patch tomorrow morning, unless you beat me to it :)
