If M=1 (uniprocessor system), or in case of partitioned scheduling (each
real-time task is statically assigned to one and only one CPU), it is
possible to formally check if all the deadlines are respected.

+3.3 Schedulability Analysis for Multiprocessor Systems
On multiprocessor systems with global EDF scheduling (non partitioned
systems), a sufficient test for schedulability can not be based on the

+3.4 Relationship with SCHED_DEADLINE Parameters
Finally, it is important to understand the relationship between the
SCHED_DEADLINE scheduling parameters described in Section 2 (runtime,
deadline and period) and the real-time task parameters (WCET, D, P)
