That's right. :(

It is still a violation of the layering. I wonder if we need a helper.

And the fast idle trick is also violating the layering. Grrr...

Also in a multi-core system, all the IDLE threads have the same name.
So you don't know which one you are getting. Is this OK based on
your test change?

FWIW it is not ok to have no tasks in the ready set.
