With U7 I'm now able to boot and go all the way into X/KDE with a
SMP+PREEMPT_REALTIME configured kernel (config.gz attached) and reboot
into it, again and again. Things are getting better, really, but ...

Overall behavior is still unreliable. Many things stop functioning once
and for good (until reboot). The shutdown sequence is also prone to busy
hanging.

As an aside, my greatest complaint is that jackd -R doesn't work at all:

JACK: unable to mlock() port buffers: Cannot allocate memory
jack_create_thread: error -1 switching current thread to rt for
inheritance: Unknown error 4294967295
cannot start watchdog thread
cannot load driver module alsa

Another example, and one of the very few that were verbose on dmesg, while
accessing the floppy disk (subfs mounted), I got:

kernel BUG at fs/buffer.c:2702!
