Sorry, am catching up rather late, but one thing about this discussion
has left me wondering:
does a realtime kernel have to be distribution-specific ?

I mean:
a) Could there be an attempt to patch and compile a
distribution-agnostic realtime kernel ? (Is there one already ?)

b) Or is it that every distribution expects its kernel to include some
home-made kernel modifications, and hence requires patching their own
specific brand from source ?
