Since I've been staring intensely at ___might_sleep() lately, I was thinking
we could "copy" it a bit more closely (sorry for going back on what I said
earlier).

Coming back to the double warnings (__might_resched() + schedule_debug()),
it might be better to drop the schedule_debug() warning and just have the
one in __might_resched() - if something goes wrong, there'll already be a
"BUG" in the log.

If it does get noisy, we should go for some ratelimiting - it's probably
good practice even if it is not noisy actually.

___might_sleep() has this:

if (time_before(jiffies, prev_jiffy + HZ) && prev_jiffy)
return;
prev_jiffy = jiffies;
