    2.6.8.1, for example. I'd like to compate it with the 2.6.9-rc1-mm1, which
    contains the Nick's scheduler (2.6.9-rc1 has the same scheduler as 2.6.8.1,
    AFAIK).

    Okay. A schedstats patch for 2.6.8.1 is available at

    http://eaglet.rain.com/rick/linux/schedstat/patches/schedstat-2.6.8.1
    or
    http://oss.software.ibm.com/linux/patches/?patch_id=730

    You can also pick up the program "latency.c" at

    http://eaglet.rain.com/rick/linux/schedstat/v9/latency.c

    With these two things in hand, you should be able to measure the latency
    on 2.6.8.1 of a particular process.

    A patch is not necessary for 2.6.9-rc1-mm1 (schedstats is already in there)
    but you will need to config the kernel to use it. Then retrieve a slightly
    different latency.c:

    http://eaglet.rain.com/rick/linux/schedstat/v10/latency.c

    since 2.6.9-rc1-mm1 output format is different (as you noted, it's a
    different scheduler.) Then you should be able to see if the latency of
    a particular process (updatedb, for instance) changes.
