Updated patch below... 

 git branch -a --contains 67d08dfed042855431dc99c9e0e6f6f7e85737ef

doesn't actually tell me anything other than tip/master, which is
strange... I'd expect one of the tip/sched branches to have it too.

Will you rebase whatever tree its in, getting rid of the initial commit
and revert?

receiving a PI boost also have their 'sched_class' field set to

However, Peter noticed that the code in __setscheduler() could
result in this intention being frustrated. Fix it.
