In case anyone decides to take a look, there's a line missing which was
supposed to advance the timeout in the case where we haven't yet timed out,
and the task is not interactive. A better way to do what I intended is to

      if (rq->idx && TASK_INTERACTIVE(p))
      if (!rq->idx - !TASK_INTERACTIVE(P) == 0)

With this diff in place, and with bonnie and a make bzImage sharing my cpu
with irman2, I see no terminal starvation. Both the make and bonnie are
proceeding just fine.
