So basically anything with the current per-cpu nr_iowait is bound to
yield crack induced results.

Like you said in your other email, we need to somehow intersect actual
idle time with the presence of iowait tasks. Now that's a global problem
and is unlikely to scale well. Which is of course why we have this
problem to begin with, if it were easy it'd be done right to begin with
(optimistic world view here).
