    Subject[patch] fairsched-0.30

    Fairsched is a hierarchical fair CPU scheduler. Processes are divided
    into groups and each group receives guaranteed CPU time allocation
    proportional to its weight. The standard scheduler is used to schedule
    processes within a group. It can be used to divide CPU time fairly
    among users or for more flexible CPU time allocation on busy compute
    servers. Kernel patch, documentation and a testing utility can be
    found at:

    New since v0.15 (there have been a few releases since then, I don't
    announce every one on the list):

    - added support for large number of nodes in the scheduling tree
    - made maximum number of nodes configurable via sysctl
    - a process can now move itself to a new node
    - removed fairsched_getpnid system call
    - gratuitous name change: PNid is now FNid in /proc/<pid>/status
    - beautified /proc/fairsched
    - fixed a couple more SMP races, now even more stable on SMP ;-)
    - fixed a couple of minor bugs
    - ported to 2.3.99-pre3, system call numbers changed on alpha, i386, sh
    - updated testing utility
