So apparently there is no upstream support for 2.6.27 for -rt atm. So we
(Ubuntu Studio) will *have* to ship 2.6.26. This will make things tricky
with updates and ALSA most likely.

This situation, along with the way the kernels are done now (as opposed
to past releases) might very well kill Studio.

We'll see.
