    SubjectRe: [RFC] scheduler: improve SMP fairness in CFS
    I benchmarked an early version of this code (against 2.6.21) with
    SPECjbb, SPEComp, kernbench, etc. on an 8-processor system, and didn't
    see any slowdown compared to the stock scheduler. I'll generate the data
    again with this version of the code. On the other hand, if locking does
    become a problem for certain systems/workloads, increasing
    sysctl_base_round_slice can reduce the locking frequency and alleviate
    the problem, at the cost of being relatively less fair across the CPUs.
