The messages would be helpful.  You did this by applying the normal
capabilities patch[1] by hand?  I haven't tried that yet, because I've
been experimenting with Linux Security Modules.  

If you like to live dangerously, here's[2] a preliminary realtime LSM
for 2.6 you can try.  It works with an unpatched kernel, but you need
kernel sources to build it and install it.

Agreed.  I just built a vanilla 2.6.0 last night.  To my surprise, its
realtime performance seems much better than 2.6.0-test11 on my system.
No hard numbers, just a seat of the pants impression, but noticable.
