Dan, that prompts a good question that has been bugging several people
(including me). Does this 1 million reduction count bump have an effect
more than a 2000 reduction bump? IIRC, a process is scheduled out after
2000 reductions. And my (poor) memory says that the reduction count
starts at 2000, that count is decremented, and a scheduling decision is
made when the reduction count goes negative.
Does it really make a difference if the count goes negative by a little
(e.g., only one) or by a lot (e.g., 999,990)?
