No. This version was sent by mistake. Please ignore this version. :-(

Tianyang sent another version (v2) with the subject "[PATCH V2 1/1]
Improved RTDS scheduler".

The cover letter is supposed to explain the design idea of the
improved RTDS scheduler so that reviewers could (potentially) save
time in reviewing the patch, we think. :-)
Probably, the commit message should be refined and self-contained?
