Think it's ok, it's mostly code shuffling. I'd have been happier if
there was evidence showing a before/after comparison of the sched stats
for something simple like "perf bench sched pipe" and a clear statement
of no functional change as well as a comparison of the vmlinux files but
I think it's ok so;
