But those applications will suffer jitter even if their are using CPU
to do the same work. I fail to see why adding an accelerator suddenly
means the application owner will care about jitter introduced by
migration/etc.

Again in proper SVA it should be quite unlikely to take a fault caused
by something like migration, on the same likelyhood as the CPU. If
things are faulting so much this is a problem then I think it is a
system level problem with doing too much page motion.
