Hi, Ingo. I am running this now, with good results. Unfortunately I do
not have an HT-capable processor, so I am only testing the interactivity
improvements. They are looking very good - a step in the right
direction. Very nice.

A couple bits:

These are not correct, right? I believe we want normal behavior here,
no?

What is the point of this? Left in for debugging?

Do you really want a 30 second starvation limit? Ouch.

This gives a compiler warning on UP:

kernel/sched.c: In function `sched_init':
kernel/sched.c:2722: warning: long int format, int arg (arg 2)

Since rq_idx(), on UP, merely returns its parameter which is an int.

Otherwise, looking nice :)
