Hi, Con.

Thorsten could you please test to see if this fixes the problem for
Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy.

Against a bash loop:
|# dd bs=1M count=2048 </dev/hdb >/dev/null
|2048+0 records in
|2048+0 records out
|2147483648 bytes transferred in 35.497603 seconds (60496582 bytes/sec)

Yes! Success! And the crowd goes wild! :-)

I think you finally nailed it. Thank you so much!
No, thank _you_ for bringing it to my attention and testing :)
Should I apply this to staircase in PlugSched?
I plan to make staircase v15 which is just this change, which would then need
to be resunc with plugsched. Unfortunately this needs code in
account_system_time which is not open to the schedulers in plugsched
currently so it needs more plugsched code to go in. I suspect other
schedulers may want to hook into this function, but I know you're currently
busy with smp nice to hack this in. I may look at doing it myself when I have
time if you don't have time.
OK. I'm currently porting PlugSched to 2.6.16-mm2 which requires adding
priority inheritance to each scheduler. I'm modifying staircase and
nicksched myself but would appreciate a code review after I release it.
