This is not about the idle servers..

So without the LAZY thing on, a previously blocked task hitting sys_exit
will enqueue itself on the runnable list and wake the server for pickup.

IIRC you didn't like the server waking while it was still running
another task, but instead preferred to have it pick up the newly
enqueued task when next it ran.

LAZY enables that.. *however* it does need to wake the server when it is
idle, otherwise they'll all sit there waiting for one another.
