Unfortunately it looks like it is going to take a bit more than fixing
trivial rejects. I started working on it today. I suspect I am going
to need a lot better understanding of Ingo's scheduler, so I am learning
it. I am traveling tomorrow but should be able to dive into it on

Ingo and I both agree that the patches together are a Good Thing.

I have a fully ported patch at this point but it hard locks on boot. I
believe the problem to be a few bits in sched.c, but there may be some
underlying changes that break assumptions elsewhere.

We are working on it. Help is always appreciated, though ;)
