Have you tested this patch for the UC above ? Do you have figures ?

So you have completely removed the NUMA special case without explaining why.

And you have also removed the tests for small load.

Could you explain the rationale behind all these changes ?

Also keep in mind that the current version provide +58% improvement
for stress-ng.fifo

For this case both local and idlest are fully busy and in this case
one will become overloaded so you must compare the load to be fair in
the spread of load
