That is,.. it slowly moves along with the cpu usage, only if there's a
lot of remote memory allocations (memory pressure) things get funny.

It'll try and rotate all tasks around a bit trying, but there's no good
solution for a memory hole on one node and a cpu hole on another, you're
going to have to take the remote hits.

Again.. what do we want it to do?
