    SubjectScheduler: -mm vs -staircase
    Hi all...

    Just a comment about a weird thing I have noticed wrt scheduling in latest

    My last two tests are 2.6.7-mm2 and 2.6.7-mm2+staircase-7.4 (plus a couple
    other things, like aic updated driver). I use GLMatrix as screensaver,
    running with nVidia drivers (yup, tainted kernels, but both are tainted ;)).
    What I have noticed:
    - With standard -mm, as GLMatrix runs, the framerate drops even to something
    like a frame every couple seconds
    - With staircase, it keeps running smoothly at 25fps.

    Something is strange in -mm. It keeps stoling cycles to the screensaver.
    Is this expected ?
