These are patches designed to improve system responsiveness with
specific emphasis on the desktop, but suitable/configurable to any
workload. Read details and FAQ on my web page or feel free to email my
mailing list with queries.
This version is a recommended performance and bugfix update for those
already running ck5. It does not include any of the newer latency hacks
etc in 2.6.8-rc* as this version (2.6.7-ck6) is to retain the stability
already present in -ck5.
cfq io scheduler bugfixes
Make swappiness simpler and a hard limit
Cpu scheduler policy rewrite updated with micro-optimisations and one
bugfix which ensures new tasks wake up in the "foreground".
Idle scheduling now supports cpu distribution between batch tasks
according to nice and is safe with I/O and held semaphores.
not necessary with hard swappiness
As always, please feel free to send comments, queries, suggestions, patches.
