The latter is only used from follow_dotdot(), but any automounts on ".."... 13 Jul 2010 18:38
[PATCH] sched: clear_buddies cleanup for hierarchical clearing
* dequeue_entity is calling clear_buddies() and doing hierarchical clear, when dequeue_entity itself gets called for each level from dequeue_task_fair.
