Linux "Several changes, some bugfixes and a major testing effort bring me to release a new version of the SCHED_DEADLINE patchset (v7). In addition, given the fact that the project has been around for quite some time with always a positive feedback from the community and since we have reached a stable and tested set of functionalities, I think it is time to remove the RFC tag."

I think you are confusing I/O schedulers and process schedulers.

SCHED_DEADLINE is a process scheduler, for scheduling processes to run on CPUs.

The "deadline" scheduler you are talking about is the I/O scheduler which determines which processes can do I/O to the storage system.

Very different things!
