Put me and the users out of our misery and merge it now
For the record; it merges, builds, and runs cleanly on x86_64 vanilla+CFS
provided sched-add_above_background_load is also merged (you need the old
one that adds an inline to sched.h, not the new one that depends on
SD-isms). I believe that is already merged with -mm anyway.
I'd also be interested to see if there is a better way of doing what
above_background_load() does with CFS, I think v18 added some functionality
along these lines...
We all know swap prefetch has been tested out the wazoo since Moses was a
little boy, is compile-time and runtime selectable, and gives an important
and quantifiable performance increase to desktop systems. Save a Redhat
employee some time reinventing the wheel and just merge it. This wheel
already has dope 21" rims, homes ;-)
