I know that's your stock answer whenever someone mentions nice, but if
the OP is talking about SCHED_OTHER processes, nice does play a role.

But if the OP really wants to play with fire, try "chrt".  Keep a
shell open with higher priority in case the process never blocks, so
you can kill it.  "taskset" might also be useful for multicore
