5.3 Delays

Sorry about not releasing a new kernel. Motivation and time issues have prevented me from updating to the latest kernel. I will get around to it eventually.

  1. Thanks for the update! Can't wait for a 5.3 refresh. Your scheduler is leaps and bounds ahead of others in terms of power consumption and desktop usage.

  3. I've tried cfs since a long time again for fast FPS gaming - cfs just doesn't work for latency sensitive gaming - input is delayed and feels very inconsistent. So I'm on 5.2-MuQSS ofc.

    3. Well, input latency in Quake ruins my day ;) MuQSS is the best scheduler for flick shots ofc.

      Btw, maybe it makes sense to include steams fsync-kernel-patches into the ck-patchset. They intorduce a synchronization primitive which improves synchronization latency in wine a lot. I'm not sure where the official patches are - I'm using this two futex patches: https://aur.archlinux.org/cgit/aur.git/tree/?h=linux-fsync

      They work fine on MuQSS.

    1. I'm happy to accept minor changes and bugfixes as PRs, but I need to do a major version resync myself, and that's what's delayed this time. Could still be another week.
