Matches what I wrote^W imagined (as if you believe I would have bothered
with the export rather than cut'n'paste ;)

Have a conditional
Reviewed-by: Chris Wilson <chris at chris-wilson.co.uk>
on the condition that you throw in a test that reused a few contexts a few
times. I think something like

for (nctx in prime(1, next_prime(MAX_ELSP))) {
	while (loop) {
		for (ctx = nctx) {
			for_each_engine() {
				add-spin(ctx, engine);
		// something, something inject wedge
