"""CPU scheduling seems to be one of those eternally unfinished jobs."""
Yes, indeed. But every time I see an article like this, I can't help but think back to that time, some years ago, when interest in the Linux process scheduler really fired up. It may have been during 2.1.x, but I can't remember for sure.
I do remember Linus stating on LKML that he didn't think that process scheduling was very interesting. In his opinion, process scheduling was the sort of thing that you worked on, got right, and then left for a project that was actually challenging.
I wonder how he might have responded to a proposal called the "Rotating Staircase DeadLine Scheduler" back then?
At any rate, RSDL is doomed once I finish up and present my Dimensionally Transcendent Lorentzian Transformational Scheduler. It's almost finished. But seems to be stuck in a loop at the moment... ;-)
