they all want CPU time...

Fairsched - Hierarchical Fair Scheduler for Linux

Fairsched is a hierarchical fair CPU scheduler. Processes are divided into groups and each group receives guaranteed CPU time allocation proportional to its weight. The standard scheduler is used to schedule processes within a group. It can be used to divide CPU time fairly among users or for more flexible CPU time allocation on busy compute servers.

State of the code: Tested and stable on x86 (UP and SMP), compiles on alpha and sparc. Not tested on other architectures.

Needless to say, comments and bug reports are more than welcome.
