With the new credit scheduler checked into the xen-unstable tree, I
wouldn't recommend to use either BVT or SEDF. They're both buggy. The
new scheduler is supported by us, automatically load balances on SMP
systems, and has a simpler administrator interface. Once credit
scheduler has demonstrated its stability we'll most likely remove the
other two schedulers.
