SCHED_RR doesn't limit CPU usage

I guess it's only a minor point. I don't know if there are other housekeeping tasks the kernel can quickly dispatch of (CPU load balancing, for instance) if it periodically reschedules a SCHED_RR task, even if that prio level has only one task. Clearly, a running SCHED_RR task is the highest priority thing the CPU can and should run at that point.
