    define [backlogged] in terms of job readiness · 3fbb1eda
    Björn Brandenburg authored
    Add a [job_ready] parameter to the job model, akin to [pending], that
    defines whether a job can be scheduled at a given time in a given schedule.
    
    Then use this new general notion of readiness to define [backlogged].
    
    A pending job may not be ready, whereas (under any reasonable
    definition) a ready job ought to be pending, so this definition is
    more precise and captures effects such as jitter and self-suspensions.
