Matt has expressed some dissatisfaction with the current scheduler,
so I was interested to find some very enthusiastic reactions in the
lkml to Con Kolivas's new staircase scheduler for linux.  It was
described as not only very effective but also as 'simple' in
design.  (See the 'Scheduler experiences' thread in lkml, 05Sep.)

Just curious whether his 'simple' design might be useful in DFly.

Con's kernel patches are here:
(but AFAICT they contain more than just the scheduler.)
