I'll test that myself (but in a bit - I need to go do voter
registration and socsec update first, though - I became a US citizen
last week).

Because yes, that's the reason I'm personally interested in your
scheduler latency work: I think our X behavior under load is pitiful
(I do "make -j16" on my dual-core with HT Core i5, and web browsong
shouldn't start to lag as much as it does just because I overcommit
the CPU a bit). So if this makes a noticeable difference, I think it's
very important.
