Is it proved not to negative affect MIDI jitter? It seems to be an up 
and down with kernel versions. Audio always seems to be fine, while MIDI 
jitter increases or decreases randomly from version to version. It 
should been proved that it won't have unwanted effects, before it's 
included to the rt patch's tree. I'm a user only, it's not an 
assumption, just a question.
