    As I tryied myself kernels 2.6.21, 2.6.21-cfs-v13, and 2.6.21-ck2 on the
    same machine i found *very* odd those numbers you posted, so i tested
    myself those kernels to see the numbers I get instead of talking about
    the usage of kernel xpto feels like.

    I did run glxgears with kernels 2.6.21, 2.6.21-cfs-v13 and 2.6.21-ck2
    inside Debian's GNOME environment. The hardware is an AMD Sempron64 3.0
    GHz, 1 GB RAM, Nvidia 6800XT.
    Average and standard deviation from the gathered data:

    * 2.6.21: average = 11251.1; stdev = 0.172
    * 2.6.21-cfs-v13: average = 11242.8; stdev = 0.033
    * 2.6.21-ck2: average = 11257.8; stdev = 0.067

    Keep in mind those numbers don't mean anything we all know glxgears is
    not a benchmark, their purpose is only to be used as comparison under
    the same conditions.

    One odd thing i noticed, with 2.6.21-cfs-v13 the gnome's time applet in
    the bar skipped some minutes (e.g. 16:23 -> 16:25) several times.

    The data is available on:

    How did you get your data? I am affraid your data it's wrong, there's no
    such big difference between the schedulers...
