    Indeed, first rule of realtime signal processing software
    writing is: If you can't finish the computation before
    next sample arrives, you are not real-time.

    Throwing in additional tasks causing their own IRQ mask-out
    periods, and whatnot, just makes the scheduling delays worse.

    Using e.g. RT-Linux can perhaps alleviate the non-rt scheduler's
    occasionally long latencies.
