My question pertains to a real-time application of an OMAP 3530 based target running Linux. What I am proposing to do essentially is split the CPU in half; taking the general purpose timer, and I will dedicate half the the ticks that would normally be delivered to Linux scheduler to my application, and leaving the other half for Linux. Respectively, I will make HZ=HZ/2 to preserve the Linux time sense. If I keep my time quantum in my application significantly shorter than 1/HZ, does this change make sense? Will it cause any major problems in my implementation? I sincerely appreciate the feedback.
