|| ||[Patch 0/6] Per-task delay accounting|

Could you please consider these patches for inclusion in -mm ?
The comments from earlier postings of these patches have been addressed,
including the one you made about making the connector interface generic
(more about that in the connector patch).
The following patches add accounting for the delays seen by tasks in
a) waiting for a CPU (while being runnable)
b) completion of synchronous block I/O initiated by the task
c) swapping in pages (i.e. capacity misses).
Such delays provide feedback for a task's cpu priority, io priority and
rss limit values. Long delays, especially relative to other tasks, can
be a trigger for changing a task's cpu/io priorities and modifying its
rss usage (either directly through sys_getprlimit() that was proposed
earlier on lkml or by throttling cpu consumption or process calling
The major change since the previous posting of these patches
is the resurrection of the connector interface (in addition to /proc)
and, as part of the same patch, the ability to get stats per-tgid in
addition to per-pid.
