    SubjectRT patch acceptance
    From
    Date
    Hello World!

    I went to see Andrew Morton speak at Xerox PARC and he indicated that
    some of the RT patch was a little crazy . Specifically interrupts in
    threads (Correct me if I'm wrong Andrew). It seems a lot of the
    maintainers haven't really warmed up to it.

    I don't know to what extent Ingo has lobbied to try to get acceptance
    into an unstable or stable kernel. However, since I know Andrew is cold
    to accepting it , I thought I would ask what would need to be done to
    the RT patch so that it could be accepted?

    I think the fact that some distributions are including RT patched
    kernels is a sign that this technology is getting mature. Not to mention
    the fact that it's a 600k+ patch and getting bigger everyday.

    I'm sure there are some people fiercely opposed to it, some of whom I've
    already run into. What is it about RT that gets people's skin crawling?
    It is a configure option after all.
