A real-time (-rt) kernel is available and has been for at least a few
releases. PREEMPT (which Lennart says would help) was enabled once upon a
time, but I think it was disabled due to high laptop battery usage or
something like that. After that email from Lennart, discussion about it came
up again, but it was way too late in Jaunty's cycle to be changed by that
But uh yeah...I do intend to at least bring it up at UDS and see what the
kernel team says.
