This is a last minute fix for 2.6.9 that causes internal compiler errors
Latest version of staircase cpu scheduler. This is version8.K renamed in
line with kernel release. There are no known bugs with this release. The
main changes since last -ck released staircase are significantly better
handling of subjiffy timeslices, and much larger timeslices for -niced
processes as per mainline.
Resync with latest staircase.
The mapped watermark code was incompatible with newer vm changes so it
was rewritten and is much less likely to cause oom. The same sysctls
still exist (vm.mapped and vm.hardmaplimit), but the hardmaplimit is off
by default. If you still have large amounts of swapping under heavy disk
i/o I recommend turning this on.
One small bugfix.
