Subject[patch, 2.6.9-rc4-mm1] fix oops in sched_setscheduler

the crash happens if 1) someone doesnt have profiling enabled 2) uses an
UP kernel and 3) does setscheduler. The patch below fixes 3 problems:
finishes and fixes the consolidation and fixes the profile=schedule
feature. Against 2.6.9-rc4-mm1. Tested.

also it seems that some serious mismerge happened of the
profile=schedule feature. Wli or akpm merge damage?

in the next mail i will send a patch against 2.6.9-rc4 too (which
luckily doesnt have the crash bug, but has the feature mismerge).
