    [PATCH] sched: add new SCHED_BATCH policy · b0a9499c
    Ingo Molnar authored
    Add a new SCHED_BATCH (3) scheduling policy: such tasks are presumed
    CPU-intensive, and will acquire a constant +5 priority level penalty.  Such
    policy is nice for workloads that are non-interactive, but which do not
    want to give up their nice levels.  The policy is also useful for workloads
    that want a deterministic scheduling policy without interactivity causing
    extra preemptions (between that workload's tasks).
