More balancing fixes. I also incorporated some of Andrew Theurer's
ideas. I'm generally getting good numbers now, but using fairly
synthetic benchmarks.

Now would be a good time to test if anyone is interested. Thanks.

well i didn't have the time to make extensive tests yet, but the behaviour improved a lot since v16,
and *looks* quite better compared to test9 on a 2 way xeon p4 with hyperthreading enabled,
seeing 4 cpu's.

when i get back home, I'll try to make a few benchmarks.

That would be nice. There still isn't a lot of work done in the HT
department, but something simple and easy like the shared runqueues
patch might be reasonable for 2.6.
