 After some thinking, I do not think it is worth. Theoretically, xc_broadcast
 might still not ensure that all LWPs have migrated, eg. in a case when there
 are many migrating LWPs in the same run-queue.
 After last fixes, I think migration should be very fast (~immediate) anyway,
 just re-scheduling overhead.
