Waiting for the next scheduling point might be too long, since a
thread can block for arbitrary amounts of time and keeping the marker
around for arbitrary time (unless we add a new task_struct field)
would be tricky. Marking the cgroup or tgid as being migrated which
then triggers the extra synchronization in the fork path (but which
isn't needed at other times) is probably where we'll end up.
