Alan, would you accept the trivial version of per-user
CPU scheduling for 2.4 if there is a lot of demand ?
The code has been running in Conectiva's kernel RPM for
over a year now, is implemented entirely in the recalculate
part of the scheduler, leaves the scheduler fast path all
alone and only needs to be properly ported to newer 2.4
-- IA64: a worthy successor to the i860.
