sched: sync wakeups preempt too

make sure sync wakeups preempt too - the scheduler will not
overschedule as we've got various throttles against that.
As a result, sync wakeups can be used more widely in the kernel
(to signal wakeup affinity between tasks), and no arbitrary
latencies will be introduced either.
