I tested with FOLD+AGE+ONCE+PONIES+PONIES2 shift=0 vs baseline but see some
regression for hackbench and uperf:

I have a patch which is much smaller but seems to work well so far for both
x86 and SPARC across benchmarks I have run so far. It keeps the idle cpu
search between 1 core and 2 core amount of cpus and also puts a new
sched feature of doing idle core search or not. It can be on by default but
for workloads (like Oracle DB on x86) we can turn it off. I plan to send
that after some more testing.
