Well they mostly are these days; but in the == 0 case we're either a
load-balancer migration or someone doing a dequeue/enqueue pair on an
entity about some sort of update.

The key is that when it is an load-balancer move we'll resync
appropriately on enqueue (which we need to do). We will essentially
sync with ourselves in the other cases, but they have no bearing on
why we do this.

Yeah that should be a s64 not u64 (fixed).
