Subject: [ANNOUNCE] linux-4.11-ck1 / MuQSS CPU scheduler 0.155

These are patches designed to improve system responsiveness and interactivity

For a brief description of each patch without trawling the git tree, each 
patch can be found as a quilt series here:

MuQSS 0.155 updates:
Fixed syscall convention in the code for sched_setscheduler.
Fixed copy to user error with max CPUs enabled.
Changed skip lists to 25% probability of increased level (from 50%) scaling 
each CPU up to loads of 64k as a result.
Minor preemption code tweak.


4.11-ck1 updates:
Cleaned up the patchset.


This was the most massive resync I think I can ever recall with the mainline 
kernel thanks to the complete restructuring of the scheduler code by Mingo. 
Fortunately there weren't that many actual changes to the scheduler itself 
that I needed to port but it was still a protracted effort. Probably the most 
amusing part of the resync was seeing my name mysteriously disappear from the 
credits of sched/core.c from mainline, although everyone's names were removed 
along with it. 

Given the size of this merge, it is possible there are build configurations 
that fail, so bear with me and post your config if that's the case.
