For once I can give something back, it seems; thus it's my pleasure.

So let no one touch the SMT code as long as it works...

Who on whichever list one is subscribed to or not would care to
replicate these results on 2x and report?

Thank you.

I have no idea about SCHED_LOAD_SCALE, I'm afraid, but I will give
this latest patch a run while I'm at it.

The load.sh is the same I posted before

Then I decided to do something crazier and renice some pids, to see
what happens...

Seems good enough under this very fabricated stress, hopefully someone
can tell me a good practical application with processes of different
nices going all over the place, so I can try something else.

But these processes are still clinging a bit to cpu 1 here, that's probably
another SMT feature.
Who tests this on SMP without SMT? Anyone? You! Over there!

This box will go into production soon and then I can maybe get some
glimpses of what happens in practice, and that's about it.
And it'll probably run everything with default values, except a light
mysql -5.

Thanks!
