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."

Indeed, that was exactly my point.

Hence my question, also *if* this scheduler becomes default, would Linus et al, change their position on renicing X if it is beneficial to interactivity?

Is there some underlying reason why X should not be treated as a special case if it useful to ensure it can run when it needs to?
