I never tried to do it myself but know some folks around me gave it a go
(Morten, Qais and maybe even Chris). I can't remember the exact details but
there was something about not getting the right input - duplicated wakeups,
or no migration information (I think sched_migrate doesn't cover all of the
cases) so the information you're building diverges as time progresses.
