Linux 5.10-ck1 Released With Updated MuQSS Scheduler
Kolivas announced Linux 5.10-ck1 today paired with MuQSS 0.205 as the latest of his kernel scheduler optimized for system responsiveness and interactivity.
There are no fundamental changes with the updated patches besides taking them inline with Linux 5.10 kernel compatibility.
The brief release announcement can be read on Con's blog.
In that post he also notes surprise that the new Intel graphics driver scheduling code is based on the scheduling algorithm of MuQSS. But if you are up on your Phoronix reading this shouldn't come as a surprise at all and in fact was brought up months ago.
Given Linux 5.10 is a Long Term Support kernel, in the new year will be running some fresh benchmarks with the MuQSS, Zen kernel, Liquorix, and other kernel flavors for some benchmarking fun.
