    Unfortunately, I'd like to add a "me too". 2.6.38-rc1 behaves fine, but
    with CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP=y and doing I/O and CPU intensive work (git
    prune/git repack on a Linux git tree), system load goes up to ~13 and
    becomes unresponse for some time too. This even happens when I start the
    jobs with nice -n10.

    Without CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP enabled and doing the same work,
    systemload goes up to 1 or maybe 2.

    I'm on UP as well (PowerPC G4), disabling CONFIG_SCHED_AUTOGROUP helps
    here too.

    BOFH excuse #274:

    It was OK before you touched it.
