I haven't looked at it myself, but I was told that -ck had Ingo's -rt
patch in it. Is that wrong?

If it doesn't, then I don't understand why Studio To Go! would be
using the -ck patches instead of their own kernel with -rt patches...
Seems dumb to me.

Regardless, as you know, we have the -rt patch for Ubuntu's kernel, so
I will likely just be using that, personally.
