the later, I think you can make it arbitrarily large. Have a busy task
on CPU0, this ensure !nr_running never happens.

Start a busy task on CPU1, wait for it to hit u=1, then migrate it to
CPU0, then wait for it to hit u=.5 then kill it, this effectively adds
.5 to the enqueued value, repeat indefinitely.
