sched_rr_get_interval leans on sysconf:

sched_rr_get_interval(pid_t pid, struct timespec *interval)

        interval->tv_sec = 0;
        interval->tv_nsec = sysconf(_SC_SCHED_RT_TS) * 1000;
        return 0;
        case _SC_SCHED_RT_TS:
                if (sysctlgetmibinfo("kern.sched.rtts", ....

On my system:

$ sysctl kern.sched.rtts
kern.sched.rtts = 100

So we appear to be reporting timeslices of 100us, when the real
figure is probably closer to 62500us, because the preemption is
driven by sched_tick().

Code inspection.
- Preempt SCHED_RR threads on every hardclock() tick.
- Ensure that we report the correct value to applications.
