From: Thomas Gleixner <email@example.com> Subject: sched: Limit the number of task migrations per batch on RT Date: Tue, 28 Sep 2021 14:24:25 +0200 Batched task migrations are a source for large latencies as they keep the scheduler from running while processing the migrations. Limit the batch size to 8 instead of 32 when running on a RT enabled kernel.
