What's the current status of the realtime-enabled kernel?  
Up till now I've been using the patched 2.6.16-rt26 on an 
i686.  I just re-synced my Gentoo packages list and found 
that the latest standard kernel is 2.6.19-r2.  I'm using 
rezound and muse with JACK.  Do I still need to use a 
patched kernel - or has the necessary realtime capability 
found its way into the mainstream kernel?  If so, I guess I 
would still need the realtime module.  Is this correct?
