If there is a runnable RT task we'll schedule to it ASAP. This means
for:

CONFIG_PREEMPT=y

either immediately or when next preempt_enable() hits a 0
preempt_count.

CONFIG_PREEMPT=n

on any next kernel preemption point or when returning to userspace.

But this is not something we should worry about.
