Subject: [PATCH 0/18] sched: simplified fork, enable load average into LB and power awareness scheduling
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.kernel
Date: Monday 10th December 2012 08:22:16 UTC (over 3 years ago)
This patchset base on tip/sched/core tree temporary, since it is more 
steady than tip/master. and it's easy to rebase on tip/master.

It includes 3 parts changes.

1, simplified fork, patch 1~4, that simplified the fork/exec/wake log in
find_idlest_group and select_task_rq_fair. it can increase 10+%
hackbench process and thread performance on our 4 sockets SNB EP machine.

2, enable load average into LB, patch 5~9, that using load average in
load balancing, with a runnable load value industrialization bug fix and
new fork task load contrib enhancement.

3, power awareness scheduling, patch 10~18, 
Defined 2 new power aware policy balance and
powersaving, and then try to spread or shrink tasks on CPU unit
according the different scheduler policy. That can save much power when
task number in system is no more then cpu number.

Any comments are appreciated!

Best regards!
Alex
