In reply to: BFS by abacus
Parent article: KS2011: Scheduler testing

BFS was announced in 2009, that's ages ago at kernel development time scales. Mainline scheduler developers already analyzed and discussed it back in those days, made some improvements to CFS and moved on. It's simply not relevant anymore.

BFS wasn't "superior in all regards", don't expect that from the mainline scheduler either. Every heuristic algorithm will be better in some cases and worse in others.
