Subject[patch] scheduler bits from 2.5.23-dj1

the scheduler optimisation in 2.5.23-dj1, from James Bottomley, looks fine
to me. I did some modifications:

- use another form: task_cpu(p) & set_task_cpu(p, cpu), which is shorter
for the common uses - and this way the optimisation also makes the
source more compact.

- put task_cpu() and set_task_cpu() into sched.h, since these are
task-level operations.

- there is no need for the #if CONFIG_SMP, gcc is good at optimizing away
a branch if it has a (0 != 0) condition on UP :-)

- (i did not carry over all the comment changes, only the speling ones.)

another change in 2.5.23-dj1 is the initialization of the pidhash in
sched_init(). It does not belong there - please create a new init function
within fork.c if needed. The pidhash init used to be in sched_init(), but
this doesnt make it right.

And i'm not quite sure whether it's needed to expose the pidhash to the
rest of the kernel - it would be much simpler to have it in kernel/fork.c
locally, and find_task_by_pid() would be a function instead of an inline.
(it has a ~49 bytes footprint on x86, it's rather heavy i think.)

my current scheduler patchset (against 2.5.23, tested) is attached.

Ingo
