For Fedora, you need F14 for systemd and that requires disabling
selinux .... no thanks.  i guess i will wait for 2.6.37 as well.  i
suppose i have to agree with Torvalds on this ... optimize the default
kernel for general purpose desktop use.  The specialty use cases like
leaf and other embedded systems that may need different scheduling
algorithms can put in their own scheduler ... i believe.
