BTW, sorry for the shameless plug, but even with the current
SCHED_DEADLINE you are not forced to dimension the runtime using the
WCET. You can use some stochastic analysis, providing probabilistic
deadline guarantees. See (for example) "QoS Guarantee Using
Probabilistic Deadlines"
http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.22.7683&rep=rep1&type=pdf
and "Stochastic analysis of a reservation based system"
http://www.computer.org/portal/web/csdl/doi?doc=doi/10.1109/IPDPS.2001.925049
(sorry, this is not easy to download... But I can provide a copy if you
are interested).
