[PATCH] sched: add new SCHED_BATCH policy

Add a new SCHED_BATCH (3) scheduling policy: such tasks are presumed
CPU-intensive, and will acquire a constant +5 priority level penalty.  Such
policy is nice for workloads that are non-interactive, but which do not
want to give up their nice levels.  The policy is also useful for workloads
that want a deterministic scheduling policy without interactivity causing
extra preemptions (between that workload's tasks).
