Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier - this patch is not meant to
go into 2.6. It is for Andrew to get ia64 working after my
last round of scheduler patches.

There are pretty significant changes, so the optimal values
for various things will have changed quite a bit.

I can imagine max_interval could probably be increased.

Setting imbalance_pct to 100 is interesting, I wonder why this
helps performance... It would be good to get schedstats output.
