A new version of plugsched is available for 2.6.10-rc1-mm4
Mainly this is a resync and cleanup.
The only new feature is the addition of the first in a family of
minimalist schedulers: minisched
Minisched is a uniprocessor only scheduler that has support for the real
time scheduling policies SCHED_RR, and SCHED_FIFO, with only very simple
RR scheduling for SCHED_NORMAL. It is designed for use in an environment
that mainly uses real time scheduling and wishes minimum overhead.
Microsched and nanosched are also planned. Microsched will have no
support for real time tasks and have simple RR scheduling for
SCHED_NORMAL. Nanosched will have no priority support at all.
A non-mm version is planned in the not too distant future...
After a hint from Peter I've trimmed the version number to only 7 digits
(datestamp + release that date) :P
