This is correct.  Basically I read the (which explains Linux

Scheduler inspired me to write the same thing for CPU resources.  It was

I most recently described this at, a
lot of that thread is probably worth catching up on.
Have you considered adding an implementation of these schedulers to PlugSched?

No, I haven't; I'd be happy to do so, given appropriate pointers to a
codebase I can produce commits for.  Is there a public git tree for the
patches, or a series of split out patches?

Yes, but not yet publicly available. I use quilt to keep the patch series up to date and do the change as a relatively large series (30 or so) to make it easier for me to cope with changes in the kernel. When I do the next release I'll make a tar ball of the patch series available.

Of course, if your eager to start right away I could make the 2.6.17-rc4-mm1 one available?

 I see only combined patches
on the SourceForge site.

Yes, I'm trying to be not too greedy in my disk space use :-)
