Hello All,

Two topics are calling for a lecture which exposes the internals (and
guts) of the new Linux:

*Tickless Kernel - how was it done? What are the mechanisms available
inside the kernel? What is expected of userspace programs? What should
a user do to make the best usage of a tickless kernel (powertop?
anything else?).

*Completely Fair Schedule - Ingo Molnar's (yet new) scheduler. I
remind you of Erez Hadad's lecture at Haifux about Ingo Molnar's O(1)
scheduler, which brought a record attendance (for the time) of 36

Let the person who knows his/her kernel rise to the stage and speak!
