An Implementation of the Earliest Deadline First Algorithm in Linux

Recently, many projects have been started to introduce some real-time mechanisms into General Purpose Operating Systems (GPOS) in order to make them capable of providing the users with some temporal guarantees. Many of these projects focused especially on Linux for its capillary and widespread adoption throughout many different research and industrial environments. By tracking the kernel release cycle, the authors propose an efficient Earliest Deadline First implementation in the form of a patch-set against the 2.6.25 version that is the latest released one, as of now.
