[patch] sched-2.6.5-rc3-mm1-A0

the latest scheduler patch, against 2.6.5-rc3-mm1, can be found at:


this includes:

- fork/clone-time balancing. It looks quite good here, but needs more
testing for impact.

- a minor fix for passive balancing. (calculating at a -1 load level
was not perfectly precise with a runqueue length of ~4 or longer.)

- use sync wakeups for parent-wakeup. This makes a single-task strace
execute on only one CPU on SMP, which is precisely what we want. It
should also be a speedup for a number of workloads where the parent
is actively wait4()-ing for the child to exit.
