as someone above said, this scheduler often comes up kind'a badly in the
news. really feels like a big hack... if you compare the design with dr.
Con Kolivas'  staircase scheduler - i really feel the kernel developers
should think about merging it.
its designed with interactivity in mind, not hacked on. all this fiddling
to work around a (seemingly) wrong design - it doesn't sound like the
right thing to do... and if it saves hundreds of lines of code, and
generally seems to perform better , wouldn't it be smarter to get it
in, even as an alternative choice, for even wider testing (altough it is
quite mature, after all these years of hard work)?
