Seems lockless traversal and averages just lets multiple CPUs select
the same spot. An atomic reservation (feature) when looking for an
idle spot (also for fork) might fix it up. Run the thing as RT,
push/pull ensures that it reaches box saturation regardless of the
number of messaging threads, whereas with fair class, any number > 1
will certainly stack tasks before the box is saturated.
