Subject: [PATCH]sched/rt: Simplify pick_rt_task: remove next_prio() inheritance
Date: Thu, 31 Jan 2013 18:56:17 +0400
Message-ID: <> (raw)

Function next_prio() has been removed and pull_rt_task() is the only
user of pick_next_highest_task_rt() at the moment.

pull_rt_task is not interested in p->nr_cpus_allowed, its only interest
is the fact that cpu is allowed to execute p. If nr_cpus_allowed == 1,
cpu != task_cpu(p) and cpu is allowed then it means that task p is in
the middle of the migration techniques; the task waits until it is moved
by migration thread. So, lets pull it earlier.
