SubjectScheduler and ISRs (Timer)
Hi kernel hackers,
I went thru the ret_from_syscall code.( I believe that what
gets called after a timer interrupt.)

What other things are checked before calling the scheduler (schedule())
The problem is that if i use udelay in my Timer function (the function
thats called when a timer expires) the scheduler is not called
sometimes, even though I set need_resched to 1.
But if i dont use udelay() the scheduler gets called everytime.

Obviously there is something I am missing here.. can u ppl help me out
(*Plead plead.. beg beg*)

This was observed with 1.3.62 and now with 1.3.91.
