|| ||[PATCH] Staircase scheduler v8.6|
|| ||Thu, 23 Sep 2004 20:36:30 +1000|
Updated the staircase cpu scheduler. This version is the first in the
next development phase I've been leading it towards - removing
dependency on scheduler_tick to make it suitable for a tickless kernel.
v8.6 removes all timeslice expiration from scheduler_tick and does this
with an on-demand timer of it's own. Currently this does not offer any
major advantage over the previous version, but once more of the code is
removed from scheduler_tick and there is a mechanism for more accurate
timers not dependant on jiffies it will offer better accuracy, lower
overhead and low power advantages.
