I've resynced the staircase cpu scheduler v9.1 with linux-2.6.10-rc2.

Note that a minute change from version 9.0 to v9.1 caused a massive change in the behaviour of frequently waking tasks that could get stuck at lowest priority for a while in all versions of the staircase scheduler has been fixed. This causes quite large improvements in fairness, latency and behaviour of high performance gaming with more stable and slightly higher fps and better audio behaviour. (note this change is already present in 2.6.9-ck3).
