Comment (by pastly):

 > sooo... did you change anything in the vanilla scheduler? It's
 impossible to tell with the diffs. Wasn't there a bug in there you fixed?

 I removed the `SchedulerLowWaterMark__`, `SchedulerHighWaterMark__`, and
 `SchedulerMaxFlushCells__` options. They were ineffective and never

 Low: Tor had to have less than this in its outbufs or else it wouldn't
 start a scheduling round. High: Tor would stop a scheduling round if it
 hit this. MaxFlush: Tor would flush this many cells at maximum from a
 circuit queue to its outbuf at a time before moving on to another channel.

 They were all set so high that they didn't matter.


 > "What if ms >= 1000?"

 I'm assuming you mean "what if diff >= 1000"

 sched_run_interval (or _freq as it was called then) has a maximum of 100
 ms. If diff is larger than sched_run_interval, the code block with
 `event_active` is called instead so it doesn't matter.


 I've put off mucking around with int types still.
