    No, but I did. With the vanilla scheduler, a normal user can turn X into a cpu
    hog and starve cc1s for 3 seconds, and the more X like applications there are
    on the machine, the longer they can all sit around starving something else.
    Feeling ok on one machine is not enough to say it's fine.

    No, the same issues that apply to fairness, interactivity, throughput and
    latency are there regardless of SMP or UP. I've had good reports from SMP in
    the past; your HT report is the first that it was bad, and I've said that
    some fairness issues have been addressed which cause those.

    The current scheduler (with or without some tweak or other) will be in 2.6 and
    should work as much of the time, in as many settings as possible, well. Since
    I'm trying to work on it I hope you can report exactly what your issue is and
    I'll try and address it. Do you really compile jobs make -j10 each time while
    using your machine? (rhetoric question of course since there is absolutely no
    advantage to doing that without lots of cpus). If not, how does it perform
    under your real world conditions?
