Scheduler rewrite (performance changes?)

Looking at the 1.3.11 patch, a rewrite of the scheduler has
begun. It no longer has those ugly confuse_gcc jumps in it, and seems
faster (at least according to the byte benchmarks :) - it also appears
to be unfinished, in that the runqueues haven't been implemented yet.

I'd say the changes in the byte benchmarks are due to the
scheduler rewrite...

My question is, does this change the scheduler logic, or just
make it much more efficent (which is fine in and of itself :) ?
