    Subject"sched: add vslice" causes horrible interactivity under load
    I recently upgraded from 2.6.23.x to 2.6.24 and found that whereas
    with 2.6.23.x I could have multiple "make -j3" compilation runs going
    in the background with no real problems (on a dual-core Core 2), with
    2.6.24 I get multiple-second lags when trying to switch tasks in KDE.
    I did a git bisect starting from 9b73e76f3cf63379dcf45fcd4f112f5812418d0a
    in Linus's 2.6.25 tree in the hope that the recent scheduler merge might
    have fixed the problem, but no such luck. Instead, git bisect points its
    all-knowing finger at

    sched: add vslice

    add vslice: the load-dependent "virtual slice" a task should
    run ideally, so that the observed latency stays within the
    sched_latency window.

    A straight-forward git revert crashes at boot, so I don't have a patch to offer. :-/
