What are you talking about? This article refers to the CPU SCHEDULER, which decides when which process is about to run. The Staircase scheduler from Con is an I/O scheduler, which controls a block device. (When to access disk and stuff..)

No, actually, the staircase scheduler is a CPU scheduler. See this LWN article from 2004.
