Well looking at these graphs (and the fixed one from your second
email), it sure looks a lot like CFS is doing at *least* as well as
the old scheduler in every single test, and doing much better in most
of them (in addition it's much more consistent between runs). This
seems to jive with all the other benchmarks and overall empirical
testing that everyone has been doing. Overall I have to say a job
well done for Ingo, Peter, Con, and all the other major contributors
to this impressive endeavor.

Cheers,
Kyle Moffett
