Faster than realtime? Does this require loading the einstein kernel 

Seriously, folks, I can appreciate that what is probably meant is 
'faster than what the hardware considers to be realtime', but I think 
we have to be careful with the semantics here. Otherwise, people will 
think that Linux audio developers are promising the impossible! 

Imagine: 'I overdubbed the guitar track and the second instrument came 
in half a second before the first, while on Windows it comes in half 
a second later. Linux rocks - and bends space-time too!'
