2014-09-16Documentation/scheduler/sched-deadline.txt: Improve and clarify AC bitsLuca Abeni1-17/+82
Admission control is of key importance for SCHED_DEADLINE, since it guarantees system schedulability (or tells us something about the degree of guarantees we can provide to the user). This patch improves and clarifies bits and pieces regarding AC, both for UP and SMP systems.

2012-05-17sched: Remove stale power aware scheduling remnants and dysfunctional knobsPeter Zijlstra1-4/+0
It's been broken forever (i.e. it's not scheduling in a power aware fashion), as reported by Suresh and others sending patches, and nobody cares enough to fix it properly ... so remove it to make space free for something better. There's various problems with the code as it stands today, first and foremost the user interface which is bound to topology levels and has multiple values per level. This results in a state explosion which the administrator or distro needs to master and almost nobody does. Furthermore large configuration state spaces aren't good, it means the thing doesn't just work right because it's either under so many impossibe to meet constraints, or even if there's an achievable state workloads have to be aware of it precisely and can never meet it for dynamic workloads. So pushing this kind of decision to user-space was a bad idea even with a single knob - it's exponentially worse with knobs on every node of the topology. There is a proposal to replace the user interface with a single 3 state knob: sched_balance_policy := { performance, power, auto } where 'auto' would be the preferred default which looks at things like Battery/AC mode and possible cpufreq state or whatever the hw exposes to show us power use expectations - but there's been no progress on it in the past many months. Aside from that, the actual implementation of the various knobs is known to be broken. There have been sporadic attempts at fixing things but these always stop short of reaching a mergable state. Therefore this wholesale removal with the hopes of spurring people who care to come forward once again and work on a coherent replacement.
