I've just tried this out. First I had to define SCHED_BATCH and 
SCHED_ISO, just to get anywhere, but ultimately it fails because it 
relies on getting the value of thread->unix_tid and/or thread->unix_pid. 
Unfortunately, these never seem to be set after being initialised to -1 
(in fact, in a very quick grep of Wine I could only find one or two 
assignments involving either of them, and that was just copying the 
value from another thread).
To be honest I have no idea where to go from here.
