Indeed. Top be honest, I don't get it why he re-stated that. I mean, it's
lovely to try and fix things if they come up, but this was and is
impossible to fix. And I'm sure Ingo won't try to fix it either. If
someone complains X gets not enough CPU (because it gets 1/10th if 10
heavy processes are running), he will tell the person to renice X. Just
like Con did. After all, it's what a fair scheduler does.
Someone complaining about it simply doesn't understand it - a fair
scheduler WILL lead to regressions. No way around it, period. It's unfair
to attack Con on this one, imho, and again - I really don't see how
Corbet can say these things.
BTW not to say Corbet is stupid or anything negatively, I just think he's
wrong here. Or there is something I utterly do NOT understand (and if
that's the case, I hope he can explain).
