From: Xunlei Pang <pang.xunlei@linaro.org>

There may be some non-migratable tasks queued in the "run queue"
with the same priority as current which is FIFO and migratable,
so at each tick we can check and try to push current away and
give these tasks a chance of running(we don't do this for tasks
queued with lower priority).
