    Uhm, that switching the scheduler would be possible on-the-fly was a remark of Matt not to be attributed to me. I really thought this had to fixed at boot-time.
    *Changing* the scheduler is actually very easy thanks to LWKT if you’re willing to live with some #ifdef’d stuff…

    The more DragonFly evolves, the more impressed I get.

    I changed the post – hopefully it doesn’t misattribute any more.
