    It's quite large, and I didn't think I was "syntactically" wrong. But
    the code is available, if somebody wants to have a look.

    That's what I do, although I use the wait_event_interruptible macro
    instead of interruptible_sleep_on.

    If we're talking about %CPU times, right. If we're talking loadavg,
    no. As I said in my previous message, I think it's because my
    wake_up_interruptible() is *always* triggered during the timer
    interrupt, just before the scheduler runs (new data is available every

    I'm not sure, but I think that the loadavg is computed at the
    beginning of each scheduler run, thus, my task always looks "running"
    at this time, even though it just runs for a few microseconds each
