C_i/min{D_i,T_i},where T_i is not referred before, should be
substituted by C_i/min{D_i,P_i}.
You are right, "T_i" should be substituted with "P_i"...
But now that I look at it more carefully, I think that "C_i" is also
wrong... It should be "WCET_i".

BTW, speaking about documentation: I still have some SCHED_DEADLINE
documentation patches in my local tree... I'll update and send them in
next week. Juri, should I send the patches to you, or submit directly
to the mailing list?

As you prefer, I'll review them anyway :). I guess you can just
send them on the list if you like, so that you'll receive more
comments in one go.
Ok; I am finishing to check what I wrote, and I'll send an RFC to the
mailing list after lunch.
