The paper referenced by Bjoern yesterday mentioned that Baruah et al.
did that proof.

"For the considered case di < pi , Baruah et al. [7] showed
that the complexity increases considerably. However, as-
suming the processor utilization to be strictly less than 1,
Baruah et al. [6, 7] proved that if a deadline is missed,
this happens within a maximum time upper bound which
can be computed."

hard-real-time sporadic tasks on one processor. Proceedings
of the 11th IEEE Real-Time Systems Symposium, December 1990.

complexity concerning the preemptive scheduling of peri-

It also jives well with that I remember from reading through Jim's
papers on Soft-RT G-EDF.
