SubjectRe: [patch 5/12] sched: tweak sched_latency and min_granularity
From
Date

sched: tweak sched_latency and min_granularity

Allow LAST_BUDDY to kick in sooner, improving cache utilization as soon as
a second buddy pair arrives on scene. The cost is latency starting to climb
sooner, the tbenefit for tbench 8 on my Q6600 box is ~2%. No detrimental
effects noted in normal idesktop usage.
