Using the following configuration for rt-app,
{
        "tasks" : {
                "task_other" : {
                        "instance" : 1, //only 1 instance to be easy to observe
                        "cpus" : [2],
                        "loop" : 2000,
                        "policy" : "SCHED_OTHER",
                        "run" : -1,  //make normal task 100% running
                        "priority" : 0,
                        "sleep" : 0
                },
                "task_idle" : {
                        "instance" : 1,
                        "cpus" : [2],
                        "loop" : 2000,
                        "policy" : "SCHED_IDLE",
                        "run" : 1, //only run 1us to avoid
blocking(always waiting for running), making check_preempt_wakeup
work(S->R switching)
                        "timer" : { "ref" : "unique2" , "period" :
16000, "mode" : "absolute" }
                }
        },
        "global" : {
                "calibration" : "CPU0",
                "default_policy" : "SCHED_OTHER",

*task_idle*  preempts every 12ms because of the compensation.

*task_idle* preempts every 24 or 16 ms.

This patch could reduce the preempting frequency of task_idle, and
reduce the interference from SCHED_IDLE task.

Thx.

Jiang
