I still have hope, that Alexey will split up his patches
so they could be verified/integrated ...
(or am I totally wrong Alex?)
the O(1) scheduler should be an option, not default, because
even Ingo was against an integration into the main kernel
(there are several advantages and some disadvantages ...)
but I would be glad to see a set of patches (like the
O(1) scheduler or the low latency (rml)/ lock breaking stuff
ontop of the ctx patches ...
