The new sedf scheduler has been in the xen-unstable reopository for a
couple of days now. As it may become the default scheduler soon, any
testing now is much appreciated!

Quick summary can be found in docs/misc/sedf_scheduler_mini-HOWTO.txt

Future directions:
-effective scheduling of SMP-guests
  -clever SMP locking in domains (on the way)
  -timeslice donating (under construction)
  -identifying gangs and schedule them together
  -balancing of domains/ VCPUs

Any comments/wishes/ideas/... on that are welcome!
