kerneloftruth, i got an interesting investigation. if you compile kernel 2.6.36 with ck patches, instead of the zen for bfs, you will get the exact same amount of interactivity in both 2.6.36 and 2.6.37 versions. so, that means the problem isn't in bfs, but apparently some sorta change in zen kernel. ok, so i tried zen kernel with the second patch (most of the patches in the first one are already there) with cfs autogroup and all those cgroup option, and i am pretty impressed with the performance increase. i can again compile with 4 jobs and still play video games and watch hd videos on youtube at the same time.

i found another weird result. if you compile firefox on one kernel, it will work the best just on that specific kernel. i dont get it???

co-incidentally, i just stumbled across that patchset today myself. i am currently compiling it with kztmem, and custom optimization flags, -O3 -march=native -pipe -flto -floop-parallelize-all -floop-block -floop-interchange -floop-strip-mine -ftree-loop-linear -fexcess-precision=fast

nice, it boots up. interesting, cursor doesn't stop at all. i mean really, i click on firefox and while its loading and dont see a single slowdown while i am moving it. this seems like a very good start. i will see how well it performs compared to the zen kernel. it gave me an amazing first impression, thats for sure.
