Hmm, you may be right, and that should be fixed. If a task is running
and gets preempted by a higher priority task (or even of same priority
for migrating), then it should stay at the front of the queue to be
migrated. It should only be placed after other FIFO tasks of the same
priority if that task calls schedule() directly (not preempted).

SMP always cracks a few rotten eggs in the RT omelet.
