Hi could you please please consider adding BFS patch into our gentoo-patchset.
It does not modify any of the current behaviour but adds new option, and I tested it on 3 desktops and it responds better than CFS :]
Sorry, we tend not to include patches outside the main kernel development tree.
Q. Will you apply [some kernel patch]?
If it's a serious and non-intrusive bugfix that has been accepted into the upstream development kernel, then usually yes (please open a bug). Otherwise, generally the answer is no - instead of getting new features added to our kernel, we'd prefer you to contact the authors of that code and get them to finish off their work and submit it to the mainline kernel so that everyone can benefit.
I am not sure if this could fit behind the "experimental" USE flag (and default disabled of course) as I think Con Kolivas won't try to get it merged into mainline kernel :/
As a note, the updated patches (for BFS and others) look to be at:
