too bad that it won't help JACK out :( it offers nothing in the way of
help in deterministic scheduling of SCHED_FIFO tasks - its mostly
about making sure that the task woken by the interrupt runs quickly. 

even so, nice results and it adds more reasons why dual CPU boxes are
just the bees knees for what we do.
