Just for giggles, that'd look something like:

while (!entity_is_task(se) {
cfs_rq = group_cfs_rq(se);
se = pick_next_entity(cfs_rq, cfs_rq->curr);
}
p = task_of(se);

if (is_per_cpu_kthread(p))
ideal_runtime /= 2;

the core-scheduling patch set includes the right primitive for this I
think, pick_task_fair().
