First of all, thanx Con for this nice piece of code.
I've been trying in the last few days to backport this new scheduler to
a 2.6.18 kernel. After a lot of efforts I have finally been able to
compile and run a RSDL patched 22.214.171.124 kernel on a x86_64 arch and
actually my test PC booted 2-3 seconds faster with it compared to a
vanilla 126.96.36.199 kernel.
This patch includes a few other patches from 2.6.19+ kernel:
The patch to get you from 0.26 to 0.28:
There might also be other small pieces of code comming from a 2.6.19+
Due to the project I'm currently working on, this will, in the next few
weeks, help me out comparing heavy loads on a Debian Sarge/Etch 32/64
platform. Suggestions on benchmark tools would greatly be appreciated.
Duno if this will be helpfull for anybody but I tought it would be nice
to give it back to the lkml community.
