John, here is some first feedback to get the ball rolling:

I tried to apply your patches on v5.9-rc4, and I got those warnings:

Applying: docs: scheduler: Restructure scheduler documentation.
.git/rebase-apply/patch:30: new blank line at EOF.
.git/rebase-apply/patch:137: new blank line at EOF.
warning: 2 lines add whitespace errors.
Applying: docs: scheduler: Add scheduler overview documentation
.git/rebase-apply/patch:73: new blank line at EOF.
warning: 1 line adds whitespace errors.
Applying: docs: scheduler: Add introduction to scheduler context-switch
.git/rebase-apply/patch:153: new blank line at EOF.
.git/rebase-apply/patch:260: new blank line at EOF.
warning: 2 lines add whitespace errors.

You might want to look into this. I also checked that the patch also 
applies on linux-next, i.e., next-20200908; so, it does not clash in an 
obvious way with other changes at the moment.

I did run and it warned about:
WARNING: added, moved or deleted file(s), does MAINTAINERS need updating?

No action required here. 

Documentation generation (make htmldocs) shows these two new warnings with 
your patches applied to v5.9-rc4:

  ./kernel/sched/core.c:17: WARNING: Definition list ends without a blank 
line; unexpected unindent.
  ./kernel/sched/core.c:21: WARNING: Unexpected indentation.

You might want to put those minor fixes on your remaining TODO list for 
this patchset as well.

I will continue to comment with more editorial points in the next hours 
and days, while proof-reading your additions to the documentation.
