Yup.. Latest SCHED_ULE commit did it for me. My system now is fast and
responsive. I ran similar tests, and everything ran quite smoothly with
Gnome Desktop environment. Quite drastic change, system was practically
unusable before this with SCHED_ULE.

However, under higher CPU usage (90%+) and load (>2) the mouse starts to
feel sluggish. While still responsive enough to use, it still slows down
enough to be noticeable.

Confirmed. It now works just fine (so far) with KSE.
