In any case, there's a slightly updated version here:

git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/peterz/queue.git sched/wip2

it has push/pull balancer changes that sorta work. There's still
something funny with the NO_RT_PUSH_IPI case (and concequently also the
deadline code, which is an exact mirror of that code).

(it looks like it ends up migrating things in circles due to the for
loop in pull_rt_task)
