Hi Ingo,

Please ignore my last report about lag problem while using CFS-v13, it is
working perfectly fine with and the lag I used to see in v12 is not
there with v13 anymore. After digging in a bit I found that problem is only
occurring in 2.6.22-rc1 and it get fired by network usage while transmitting
data upstream. I don't have any evidence that CFS is involved in lag problem
since 2.6.22-rc1 with stock scheduler is also having same lag problem and it
seems directly proportional with upstream speed while downstream doesn't
shows any misbehavior { at lower upstream speed lag is less but with higher
upstream speed system starts crawling and system load hitting to 70/75}. Lets
see how 2.6.22-rc2 is doing.
