It looks like many latency fixes from the voluntary preemption patch are
going into the -mm series.  Search this post for 'latency', it appears
that the filemap_sync issue (which caused apt-get to trigger an xrun) is
addressed, as well as several others.  One of the more interesting items
added is 'low latency RCU'.

So, althouh Ingo has been quieter lately, problems are being fixed.

Here is the announcement:

There is no voluntary preemption patch available yet for -mm2, as this
annonucement is just a few hours old.  It seems likely that future
'voluntary preemption' patches for the -mm series would consist of
little more than the irq-threading feature.  This would fit the new
development model very well.
