While you're getting rid of the concept of 'GENTLE_FAIR_SLEEPERS', don't
forget to also get rid of the concept of 'over-scheduling' :)

That gentle thing isn't perfect (is the enemy of good), but preemption
model being based upon sleep, while nice and simple, has the unfortunate
weakness that as contention increases, so does the quantity of sleep in
the system. Would be nice to come up with an alternative preemption
model as dirt simple as this one, but lacking the inherent weakness.
