Linux This month marks the two-year anniversary of the release of BFS, the Brain Fuck Scheduler, for the Linux kernel. While BFS has not been merged into the mainline Linux kernel, the scheduler is still actively maintained by Con Kolivas and patches are updated for new kernel releases. The BFS scheduler has also reached mild success and adoption over the past two years. In this article is a fresh look at the Brain Fuck Scheduler along with a fresh round of benchmarks from the Linux 3.0 kernel.

You don`t really need this patch anymore. I can get 0.33ms latency with the regual kernel, with a good config. But it still outperforms the regular kernel, according to Con Kolivas benchmarks, so if you want the absolutely lowest latency, go for it.

Seems to perform at bit better aswell in other areas, according to this article !
