agreed - it would also be less intrusive on the API change side.

i've created a new tip/sched/new-API-sched_setscheduler topic for this
to track it, but it would be nice to have a v2 of this patch that
introduces the new API the way suggested by Jeremy. (Hence the new topic
is auto-merged into tip/master but not into linux-next yet.) Thanks,
