Nice that you've looked into this.

Would it be possible for you to run the same tests on e.g. a dual core
and/or a UP system (or maybe just offline some CPUs?)? It would be very
interesting to see whether BFS does better in the lower portion of the
range, or if the differences you show between the two schedulers are
consistent across the range.
