[PATCH 2/2] cgroups: introduce timer slack subsystem

Kirill A. Shutsemov kirill at shutemov.name
Sun Jan 30 01:59:22 PST 2011


From: Kirill A. Shutemov <kirill at shutemov.name>

Provides a way of tasks grouping by timer slack value. Introduces per
cgroup timer slack value which will override the default timer slack
value once a task is attached to a cgroup.

It's useful in mobile devices where certain background apps are
attached to a cgroup and minimum wakeups are desired.

Based on patch by Jacob Pan.
