I saw it migrate under enough CPU load / pressure, right smack bang in
the middle of doing TCP processing.

So if we're moving towards supporting (among others) a pcbgroup / RSS
hash style work load distribution across CPUs to minimise
per-connection lock contention, we really don't want the scheduler to
decide it can schedule things on other CPUs under enough pressure.
That'll just make things worse.
