Recently I was made aware of the fact that Ingo Molnar released a patch
which brings CFS to earlier kernel versions including 2.6.22. Since
anecdotal evidence strongly suggests that the new scheduler performs
better for various desktop related workloads I would like to ask if it
is still possible to merge this patch with the current 10.3 kernel.
Since stability is probably a concern of the kernel release team I'd
like to mention that I've read reports that no severe issues have arisen
with CFS for several months now.
Sorry, but no, but adding such a major change, so late in the Beta
release process, is not a good idea at all.
If you really want to use the CFS-enabled kernel, try using one of the
kernels in the build system that tracks the upstream kernel.org
versions, they automatically have it in them.
