why not only updating wan_gran() which is the only function which uses
sysctl_sched_wakeup_granularity ?

For per cpu kthread, we could set the gran to sched_min_granularity
instead of scaling it with thread's priority so per cpu kthread can
still preempt current ask even if sysctl_sched_wakeup_granularity is
large
