    From my point of view, the reason for focussing on this was that
    your scheduler degraded the performance on my machine, rather than
    boosting it. Half of that was the more complex stuff you added on
    top ... it's a lot easier to start with something simple that works
    and build on it, than fix something that's complex and doesn't work

    I still haven't been able to get your scheduler to boot for about
    the last month without crashing the system. Andrew says he has it
    booting somehow on 2.5.44-mm4, so I'll steal his kernel tommorow and
    see how it looks. If the numbers look good for doing boring things
    like kernel compile, SDET, etc, I'm happy.
