O(1) shortens process dispatching time, usually not a big time saver
unless you have *lots* of process and/or you are doing frequent context
Another patch which is probably more important is the Ingo's breaking

You do have to sort them out one by one. (Or you get them all by becoming
mvista customer. :-0)

We'd love to have more people bang on 2.5 MIPS *grin* ...
