Just replying to this here Patrick instead of the other thread.

I think this is the right place for the block from Quentin quoted
above because we want to search for the highest domain that is
!overutilized and look among those for the candidates. So from that
perspective, we can't move the block to the beginning and it seems to
be in the right place. My main concern on the other thread was
different, I was talking about the cases where sd_flag & tmp->flags
don't match. In that case, sd = NULL would trump EAS and I was
wondering if that's the right thing to do...

thanks,

- Joel
