I have tried it with scheduling.

I have removed nice and priority, and have replaced them by some
members of pcb and phd. (To find occurences of nice and priority, at
least a partial removal is necessary)
It might not be so easy changing/removing other structs.

Patches are in cvs. (Some semantics might be very wrong)
(Patches done against a 2.4.10 selinux, but it should not matter much)
I have used linux/ as a working are; later I might move things to freevms/

It boots and works (somehow).
