Hmm probably as it makes sense for a blocked vcpu not to be contributing to
the loadavg. So if this is the only reason to use interruptible, then yes we
ought to change it.

However, I'll make this a separate patch, given this (ab)use isn't as obvious
as the PS3 case, which is a kthread and therefore signals are masked.

Thanks,
Davidlohr
