Back in 2002 I asked on lkml a question similar to yours 
<http://www.uwsg.iu.edu/hypermail/linux/kernel/0211.3/0583.html>. Rik 
Van Riel mentioned his fairsched <http://surriel.com/patches/>, but it 
looks like it's not been ported to recent kernels.

Marc-Christian Petersen pointed me to another patch 
<http://www.tls-technologies.com/CPU/cpu-intro.html>. But again, it's 
not been ported to recent kernels, it seems.
