You say cpu_capacity, but in actual fact you use capacity_orig and fail
to justify/clarify this.

Maybe explain what the specific invariance issue is that is skipped over
for now.

Like Morten I'm confused by that +1 thing.

A comment with that function that it returns capacity units might
clarify shift confusion Morten raised the other day.
