Subject: [patch] Export CPU Scheduler Tunables via DebugFS
Content-Disposition: inline; filename=debugfs-tunable-cpu-scheduler.patch

This patch exports the CPU scheduler tunables via DebugFS.

philips@plankton:~$ ls /debug/cpu-scheduler/
child_penalty interactive_delta min_timeslice prio_bonus_ratio
def_timeslice max_bonus on_runqueue_weight starvation_limit
exit_weight max_sleep_avg parent_penalty

It is similiar to the patches by Robert Love and Ingo Molnar that were
available for the 2.5 series: http://kerneltrap.org/node/525/1938

The goal remains the same: offer a simple way for _developers_ to tune and
debug the scheduler.

Perhaps someone could even automate the testing of different values[1] under
different workloads[2].
