we want to do this - and we should do this to the vanilla scheduler

Can't say i really understand why 64bit arithmetics suddenly became an
Am i supposed to run the testcase and see if numbers in `/proc/stat'
now match the reality closer? To be really accurate `/proc/stat'
should be left alone methinks, because no matter how good you try the
fundamential fact that time(and consequently load percentage) is not
really devided in USER_HZ intervals will interfere with ones quest for
accurate statistics. (Wonder what this patch will do to slightly modified
