Christoph, as per the recent analysis of Mike:

http://fixunix.com/kernel/556867-regression-benchmark-throughput-loss-a622cf6-f7160c7-pull.html

all scheduler components of this regression have been eliminated.

In fact his numbers show that scheduler speedups since 2.6.22 have
offset and hidden most other sources of tbench regression. (i.e. the
scheduler portion got 5% faster, hence it was able to offset a
slowdown of 5% in other areas of the kernel that tbench triggers)
