Okay. A schedstats patch for is available at

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

With these two things in hand, you should be able to measure the latency
on 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:

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.
