The patch is simple and just adds another struct to the array of exported values in sysctl.c.

The changelog should explain the reason for making this change, please.
People aren't going to remember some vague email thread five years
from now.

Also, please update the documentation. Documentation/sysctl/kernel.txt
is a suitable place. Lots of things in kern_table[] are undocumented,
but that's not a reason for the rest of us to suck as much as sched
developers :)
