This month marks the two-year anniversary of the release of
BFS, the Brain Fuck Scheduler, for the Linux kernel. While BFS has not
been merged into the mainline Linux kernel, the scheduler is still
actively maintained by Con Kolivas and patches are updated for new
kernel releases. The BFS scheduler has also reached mild success and
adoption over the past two years. In this article is a fresh look at the
Brain Fuck Scheduler along with a fresh round of benchmarks from the
Linux 3.0 kernel.
