I really would like to see SCHED_OTHER only returns one level of
priority, that means, for sched_get_priority_min(SCHED_OTHER) and
sched_get_priority_max(SCHED_OTHER), it will return only zero
instead of other ranges, because for time-sharing scheduling,
knowing and adjusting thread's userland priority is meaningless,
the priority is ephemeral.
