[linux-audio-user] Kernel 2.4 low-latency patches -- combining?

Hi.  I've read the stuff on the LAD website about the two low-latency
patch options for the 2.4 kernels -- Robert Love's preempt patch and
Andrew Morton's low-latency patch.  Each are described as having
good and bad points in comparison.  The way in which it's discussed
seems to suggest that one should choose one or the other; nowhere is
discussed whether it's a good or bad idea to apply both.  But that
seems to be possible; the Debian package page for AM's low-latency
kernel patch indicates that it's compatible with the preempt patch.

So I guess I'm looking for advice about this.  Are they indeed
compatible?  Is there some reason why applying *both* would be a bad

Thanks for any info.
