OK. I'm quite happy with Ingo's RT patch /and/ the realtime-lsm module. I
am currently running 2.6.11-rc4-RT-V0.7.39-01 on my laptop (P4/UP) and on
my desktop (P4/SMP-HT). And this is all about PREEMPT_RT=y.

FYI the realtime-lsm module is now being provided by the broken out patch
from 2.6.11-rc3-mm2, and it builds and works fine, as ever expected :)

To speak the truth :) I can't live without this patch combination anymore.
Its been a long way, not without drawbacks. On my hardware setup, nowadays
I already consider those pretty stable to my standards -- already in
production status to me.

That's mostly why I don't have a point to test on 2.6.11-rc3-mm2, but I
took the rt-lsm.patch from it, if that's of any help.
