In my schedulers I generalize background to "soft cpu rate caps" with a cap of zero being the same as background. I have patches to add both soft and hard cpu rate caps to the standard scheduler but I'm sitting on them until things settle down a bit.

I look forward to seeing them. Any chance of a preview?

I'll post them as a "request for comment" tomorrow. I'm still undecided about the best user space interface for using them. At the moment, I have mechanisms to set them via /proc which is very handy for testing but not necessarily the best interface for general use. Other options are via rlimits or a syscall.

There'll be a delay in this posting as I've discovered uses of MAX_PRIO (in 2.7.17-rc4-mm3) that would be broken by my current patches. I'll fix that problem and hopefully post the patches in the near future.
