OK, great. Here's a link to the kernel patch:
This should be much easier for a packager than downloading the
realtime-lsm tarball, as you can just patch the kernel and enable
realtime-lsm in Kconfig.
My goal is to have this in the kernel before Ingo's voluntary preemption
patches stabilize. Since audio users will probably have to apply Ingo's
patches to use 2.6 anyway, I would like to eliminate the extra patching
step. It would be nice to get this in 2.6.9 but I think 2.6.10 is more
Also, Ingo is now posting the individual parts of the VP patches to LKML
for possible merging; the response has also been very good, as many real
kernel bugs were discovered while developing these. So it's quite
possible that by 2.6.10 audio users will only have to use a small kernel
patch, or none at all.
