I mostly used these because it makes it easier to debug, since that
range is used in other places in the kernel (and in trace events). All
priority calculations use things that are in sched headers, like
NICE_TO_PRIO, PRIO_TO_NICE, and MAX_USER_RT_PRIO. So things wouldn't
necessarily break if you just changed the value ranges. If you
inverted the range, that would be a problem...
