sched: Fix string comparison in /proc/sched_features
Mathieu Desnoyers [Mon, 13 Sep 2010 21:47:00 +0000 (17:47 -0400)]
Fix incorrect handling of the following case:

 INTERACTIVE
 INTERACTIVE_SOMETHING_ELSE

The comparison only checks up to each element's length.

Changelog since v1:
 - Embellish using some Rostedtisms.
  [ mingo:                 ^^ == smaller and cleaner ]
