As of now, the situation is totally up in the air, and somewhat out of
our hands. We're trying to get -rt merged into .27 but things are nuts
in Ubuntu land as far as the kernel goes.

We don't even know yet what will happen.

Best case scenario, we ship a .27-rt kernel in line with main Ubuntu or
we ship -generic with a SRU to -rt later after release.

That's all I know atm. You guys know what I do.
