Subject[patch -mm] scheduler cache hot autodetect, print less

ok.

yeah, agreed.

ok. I've changed the code to be less verbose: only the distance function
is printed, not the full matrix. I have also made some other printks
dependent on migration_debug (which is off by default). The boot-time
output is now a minimalistic:

migration_cost=269,777

which can also be pasted into the kernel's boot command line to turn off
calibration on the next bootup. Patch attached below, goes to the tail
of the current scheduler queue in -mm.

[i'll reply to your other points in the next mail.]

be less verbose in the migration-cost printout.
