“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.”

A little more information about SCHED_DEADLINE:
“SCHED_DEADLINE is a new deadline-based real-time task scheduling policy for the Linux kernel with bandwidth isolation (aka “resource reservation”) capabilities. It supports global/clustered multiprocessor scheduling through dynamic task migrations.
The scheduling class implements the real-time scheduling algorithm called Earliest Deadline First (EDF), one of the most common real-time scheduling algorithms.”
