Dear Ubuntu Studio Developers,

Yesterday Ailo has reported in IRC channel that the 2.6.39 mainline
Linux kernel is going to provide an useful and interesting feature:
threaded irqs.

Until now that feature was provided by realtime kernels only. It is
the piece of code that permit to prioritize hardware interrupts which
is very useful thing when you have a firewire/usb device. I think that
we should have it for Natty.

So I could provide a -lowlatency kernel based on 39 kernel if enough
testers will offer theirs help. Sincerely I would want avoid to waste
time for make something that no one will use.

What do you think?
