OK, then the above expression is in the right order :-)

Sure, not something that needs done now. I just always think of this
when I see this pattern repeated, but never seem to get around to doing
anything about it.

I figured I'd mention it ;-)

Not sure, see what it looks like ;-) My main concern here was to get rid
of that giant blob in select_task_rq_fair().
