    Subjectrealtime idea

    I just read some VMS documentation, and I had one pretty idea. Why not to
    get some real-time code into linux kernel ? 1st, the do-not-swap option for
    process start. For example:

    [user@place ~]> noswap /usr/local/bin/superprog

    And this process never will be swapped.

    2nd, enter some code in sched.c to give processor to one process every time
    it needs it (oh, my english). For example:

    [user@place ~]> startprior /usr/local/bin/superprog

    I mean, this process will receive processor time every time it needs it.:)
    This can be pretty thing to have, because sometimes we need to run smth,
    which has to be run softly, wtihout any swap or slowdown.

    What do you think ?

    PS: "[user@place ~]> noswap startprior /usr/games/sdoom" ;-))
