Hi Maciej

I missed this announcement (been on leave for a while). This SCHED_BATCH
implementation is by Ingo and it it is not "idle" scheduling as I have
implemented in the staircase scheduler. This is just to restrict a task to
not having any interactive bonus at any stage and to have predictable
scheduling behaviour I guess.

Cheers,
Con
