Well, both change behavior, and I heartily disagree. Blocking a 700ms
sleep while allowing a 100ms sleep to bypass the same checkpoint only to
then be multiplied by 10 is a bug.
Actually, the point at which a task becomes interactive is the point at
which scheduler semantics change. Ergo, as far as I'm concerned, this
should be a boundary which must be crossed before proceeding further.
That, I agree, would be a behavioral change which should be baked in mm.
