how much would you be helped if there was a simple switch

sort left versus sort right

(assuming the big cores are all either low or high numbers)

the sorting is mostly statistical, but that's good enough in practice..
each time a task wakes up, you get a bias towards either low or high
numbered idle cpus

very quickly all tasks will be on one side, unless your system is so
loaded that all cpus are full.
