Linux Ingo Molnar released a new patchset titled the 'Modular Scheduler Core and Completely Fair Scheduler'. He explained, "this project is a complete rewrite of the Linux task scheduler. My goal is to address various feature requests and to fix deficiencies in the vanilla scheduler that were suggested/found in the past few years, both for desktop scheduling and for server scheduling workloads."

Anyone know if these rbtrees are per-processor? If they aren't then synchronization will be a pain.

This is why I like the Linux Kernel. Everyone gets to see and try out changes to fundamental pieces of the system. I wish the whole driver siutation weren't such a mess, though.
