Crafting a Linux kernel scheduler in Rust

Playing around with CPU scheduling policies has always been a dream for many kernel hackers and OS enthusiasts. However, such material typically remains within the domain of a few core kernel developers with extensive years of experience.
What if we could bring this dream to life and make it really accessible, thanks to sched-ext, eBPF and Rust?
