It does, and I guess is most probably the safest choice indeed. But,
just to put together a proper comment for next version..

The chain we are migrating is composed of blocked_task(s), so tasks that
blocked on a mutex owned by @p. Now, if such a chain has been built, it
means that proxy() has been called "for" @p previously, and @p might be
curr while one of its waiters might be proxy. So, none of the blocked_
task(s) should be rq->curr (even if one of their scheduling context
might be in use)?
