If you get it to where you can migrate a process on command controlled by
a userspace process, the scheduler part will be trivial.

And note that the choice of which process to migrate where is sufficiently
"policy" that it belongs in userspace - see how cgroups and containers are
kernel mechanisms that are controlled by userspace.  You want to follow that
model if you intend for this to be upstreamed rather than just another dead
master's thesis.
