[PATCH] Make the Xorg smart scheduler smarter

In an effort to reduce power consumption on my laptop, I'm trying out
different patches to reduce the amount of wakeups on my machine and
tracing the process using the powertop utility.
One of the biggest offenders for my laptop is the do_setitimer function
in Xorg. Arjan van de Ven has developed a patch which optimises the
smart scheduler and works around this problem. 
I have been using this patch now for a couple of days without noticing
any problems and it has reduced the amount of ticks per second immensly.
Please review and consider for inclusion in Ubuntu Hardy.
With kind regards,
