BFS Scheduler for Openmoko

I've done a backport of the BFS scheduler to the 2.6.29 kernel currently used by Openmoko.  This is only for people who want to try something new and exciting before the official release of the forthcoming 2.6.31 kernel for Openmoko with our new repository layout (at which point the upstream BFS patch should apply cleanly).

It's hardly tested, and I might have screwed up the patch completely (I don't really know my way around these areas of the kernel), but here it is: BFS for Openmoko.

My experience was, despite reports of dramatic speedups on Android, that there wasn't a huge amount of difference compared to the conventional scheduler.  Your experiences may differ, however.
