i think we could use your patch for development purposes as well, lets
merge the two efforts?

i'd suggest to name the /proc/sys/sched/ values the same way the constants
are called. Eg. /proc/sys/sched/CHILD_FORK_PENALTY. This makes it easier
to communicate suggested parameter changes.

i have a script that dumps the current sched-parameters state:

[root@mars root]# ./getsched
echo 95 > /proc/sys/kernel/CHILD_FORK_PENALTY
echo 3 > /proc/sys/kernel/EXIT_WEIGHT
echo 3 > /proc/sys/kernel/INTERACTIVE_DELTA
echo 200 > /proc/sys/kernel/MAX_SLEEP_AVG
echo 30 > /proc/sys/kernel/MAX_TIMESLICE
echo 100 > /proc/sys/kernel/PARENT_FORK_PENALTY
echo 70 > /proc/sys/kernel/PRIO_BONUS_RATIO
echo 60 > /proc/sys/kernel/PRIO_CPU_HOG_RATIO
echo 20 > /proc/sys/kernel/PRIO_INTERACTIVE_RATIO
echo 200 > /proc/sys/kernel/STARVATION_LIMIT

the script is very simple:

cd /proc/sys/kernel

for N in *[A-Z]*; do echo "echo "`cat $N`" > /proc/sys/kernel/$N"; done

otherwise our approach is identical. This patch would always stay
separate, but could be readily applied by people who want more control
over the scheduler for development or whatever other reasons.
