SubjectRe: Interesting analysis of linux kernel threading by IBM
Just to jump in here:
1.5% slowdown on a workstation is insignificant.
1.5% speedup on a heavy duty server is quite good.

If something like this gets included it would
be appropriate and desirable to have the
workstation optimization available from
the source level (like the IDE driver
optimizations). This has two positive effects:
1. The single-user optimizations are available and
can be used by the distributions without custom patches.
2. It gives the home "hot-rodder" a hook into learning
about the scheduler and an incentive to find it.
