and ignore such tasks for the load-balancer; I suppose

and expose said heap to the load-balancer..

Now, I suppose you do this because merging heaps is easier than merging
RB trees? (not in complexity iirc, but probably in code)

That's like a smeared out merge :-) But since the other tasks kept on
running, this CPUs vruntime will be (much) advanced vs those throttled
tasks and we'll most likely end up picking them all before we pick a
'normal' task.
