Are you kidding? We will be lucky to see this in during 2.5.
Its a pretty big change. It makes the Linux kernel preemptible. This
is a fairly big move, one I don't think any of the major Unices have
done. The only reason the patch is not _huge_ is because the Linux
kernel is already setup for concurrency of this nature -- it does SMP.
I suggest you read
and my previous threads on this issue, for more informaiton.
