    I have to say; these scheduler folks really like edgy naming which makes life harder. Brain FUCK Scheduler? Mucus scheduler? What's next DataR8P?

            Impossible, I have no flaws.

              "Announcing a multiple runqueue variant of BFS, with the more mundane name of MuQSS (pronounced mux) for linux 4.7:"
