I have made a patch that changes the scheduelr framework to further
abstract teh scheduler.
it is at http://www.freebsd.org/~julian/f.diff
and should apply agains -current (and probably, though I have not tested
it yet, against 5.3)
there should be no real change in teh way teh system appears to operate.
If you are feeling bored you might try applying it to a kernel tree and
I know it runs on:
AMD64 UP 4BSD libpthread
x86 UP ULE libthr
x86 UP ULE libpthread
x86 SMP 4BSD libpthread
x86 UP 4BSD libpthread
x86 UP 4BSD libthr
I'd really like to get some more combinations tested.
in particular. you should try it with threaded apps such as mozilla or KDE
I do know that a small diff against /usr/src/lib/libkvm/kvm_proc.c is
not included, so world
will not build completely.. I have the diff it's just not in the patches
to the kernel)
