Subject[PATCH] CPU history scheduler patch for 2.4.13 ...

The previous patch i sent contain an error in the cpu accounting formula.
This is an update for 2.4.13.
You can try this by using the latency sampler patch together with
the schedcnt and cpuhog tools that you can find here :

http://www.xmailserver.org/linux-patches/lnxsched.html

If you run the test with 2 cpu hog processes over an UP system and you
move the mouse during the test you'll find that with the current scheduler
the two cpu hog processes are swapped after the mouse irq processing.
A more correct behavior is obtained using this patch.
