Subject: Re: [PATCH]sched_rt.c: Avoid unnecessary dequeue and enqueue of
 pushable tasks in set_cpus_allowed_rt()

I wasn't on the Cc of the original message, but it was bounced to me
awhile ago. I'm cleaning out my email and came across it.

Can you send me the latest version of this patch, either against latest
Linus, or against tip/master.

Thanks,

-- Steve

P.S. I'll be at ELC this week so it may not get processed right away.
