HEADS-UP: ULE scheduler coming to 8.0-CURRENT soon...

I think it's fairly common knowledge by now but...  The ULE scheduler is
"back" and has been doing VERY nicely.  We actually had an internal
discussion about making it the default for 7.0.  In the end it was
decided that ULE "just barely missed the bus".  Its performance makes
giving it a try once 7.0 comes out definitely worthwhile but it was just
barely "too new" for us to be truly comfortable with changing it to be
the default.  We'd like it to have the exposure of one release cycle
(7.0-REL) before it becomes the default.  For now we're planning to make
it the default for 7.1-REL.

To that end either Jeff or I will be switching the default scheduler in
8.0-CURRENT for the amd64 and i386 architectures over to ULE in a couple
days (Wednesday-ish).
