Description of Bossa events

The following is a description of the events handled by the Bossa implementation of the Linux 2.4 scheduling policy (found here). In general, Bossa events are organized in a hierarchy, describing first the behavior of the event and then the position in the kernel from which the event is notified. Thus, block.* matches all of the blocking events in the kernel. A complete list of the events is in the file include/linux/bossa_events.h, contained in the current version of the Bossa implementation. A description of the notation used in describing the event types is contained here.

The events are as follows:
