That's Ok with me. Just that I remember Peter messing with this path
and that it was expensive to scan too much for some systems. The other
thing is you're really doing to do a "fail safe" as you call it search
here with SIS_PROP set. Do you see a difference in perf when doing the
same approach as you took in select_idle_core?

Peter, are you with the approach Rohit has adopted to pick best
capacity idle CPU in select_idle_cpu? I guess nr--; will bail out
early if we have SIS_PROP set, incase the scan cost gets too much but
then again we might end scanning too few CPUs.

thanks,
