Scheduler Merge for 2.6.24

“‘It contains lots of scheduler updates from lots of
people–hopefully the last big one for quite some time,’ began Ingo
Molnar, describing his merge request for the linux-2.6-sched git
tree. He continued, ‘most of the focus was on performance (both
micro-performance and scalability/balancing), but there’s the
fair-scheduling feature now Kconfig selectable too. Find the
shortlog below.’ Ingo noted, ‘code that is touched outside of the
scheduler: the KVM bits were acked by Avi, the net/unix change is
trivial and only affects sync wakeups, ditto the fs/pipe.c
changes–but I can push those separately if it needs an ack from
David first…'”
