Subject[PATCH] [93/275] sched: Do not consider SCHED_IDLE tasks to be cache hot
Date
2.6.35-longterm review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
Commit: ef8002f6848236de5adc613063ebeabddea8a6fb upstream

This patch adds a check in task_hot to return if the task has SCHED_IDLE
policy. SCHED_IDLE tasks have very low weight, and when run with regular
workloads, are typically scheduled many milliseconds apart. There is no
need to consider these tasks hot for load balancing.
