Subject[RFC 1/3] Introduce latency-tolerance as an per-task attribute
Date
Latency-tolerance indicates the latency requirements of a task with respect
to the other tasks in the system. The value of the attribute can be within
the range of [-20, 19] both inclusive to be in-line with the values just
like task nice values.

latency_tolerance = -20 indicates the task to have the least latency as
compared to the tasks having latency_tolerance = +19.

The latency_tolerance may affect only the CFS SCHED_CLASS by getting
latency requirements from the userspace.
