    Subject[patch] CFS scheduler, -v14

    i'm pleased to announce release -v14 of the CFS scheduler patchset.

    The CFS patch against v2.6.22-rc2, v2.6.21.1 or v2.6.20.10 can be
    downloaded from the usual place:

    In -v14 the biggest user-visible change is increased sleeper fairness
    (done by Mike Galbraith and myself), which results in better
    interactivity under load. In particular 3D apps such as compiz/Beryl or
    games benefit from it and should be less sensitive to other apps running
    in parallel to them - but plain X benefits from it too.

    CFS is converging nicely, with no regressions reported against -v13.
    Changes since -v13:

    - increase sleeper-fairness (Mike Galbraith, me)

    - kernel/sched_debug.c printk argument fixes for ia64 (Andrew Morton)

    - CFS documentation fixes (Pranith Kumar D)

    - increased the default rescheduling granularity to 3msecs on UP,
    6 msecs on 2-way systems

    - small update_curr() precision fix

    - added an overview section to Documentation/sched-design-CFS.txt

    - misc cleanups

    As usual, any sort of feedback, bugreport, fix and suggestion is more
    than welcome!
