Subject[PATCH] sched: reorder root_domain to remove 64 bit alignment padding
From
Date
Reorder root_domain to remove 8 bytes of alignment padding on 64 bit
builds, this shrinks the size from 1736 to 1728 bytes, therefore using
one fewer cachelines.

patch against v3.0-rc7

compiled & booted on x86_64.

I've been running this patch for 2 days without any obvious problems,
but I don't have any specific RT test cases.

regards
Richard
