What about threads?

This balancing technique, as it is described here, seems to talk about scheduling processes. But in my notion of the OS world, processes don't actually run -- threads do. So isn't this more about thread scheduling than process scheduling? Granted, I have never poked around any of the scheduler or process management code in Linux, so I could be way off...
I would be interested to learn how this scheduler deals with processes with multiple busy threads on, say, NUMA or SMP hardware.
Thanks for the great article, and keep those cheesy diagrams coming!
