Ah - i have messed up my sched-devel.git script so the git-push went to
kernel.org but into my home directory :-/ Should work now - let me know
if it doesnt.

i've also uploaded the patch series in quilt format, to:

http://people.redhat.com/mingo/cfs-scheduler/devel/patches.tar.gz

i'm not sure what you mean, but i can definitely tell you that there was
no scheduler hacking at the Kernel Summit. (there's no good wireless in
the pubs and not enough space for a laptop anyway ;)

The impressive linecount has been mostly achieved by dumb removal:

sched: remove wait_runtime fields and features
4 files changed, 14 insertions(+), 161 deletions(-)

sched: remove wait_runtime limit
5 files changed, 3 insertions(+), 124 deletions(-)

sched: remove precise CPU load calculations #2
1 file changed, 1 insertion(+), 31 deletions(-)

sched: remove precise CPU load
3 files changed, 9 insertions(+), 41 deletions(-)

sched: remove stat_gran
4 files changed, 15 insertions(+), 50 deletions(-)

Hack time to do them: ~10 minutes apiece. Removing stuff is _easy_ :-)

The rest is finegrained, small changes. One of the harder patches was
this one:

commit 28c4b8ed35f0fc7050f186147da9e10b55e1e446
sched: introduce se->vruntime
3 files changed, 50 insertions(+), 33 deletions(-)

And i sent you the first variant of that already:

http://lkml.org/lkml/2007/9/2/76

we needed 2 days after the KS to put it into shape and send it out for
feedback.
