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.

Nope. It's coded in C - as is the rest of the Linux kernel (well, aside any ASM dotted about)

AFAIK there's no way to embed BF code into C so I'm not even sure you could have kernel elements written in BF
