Oleg, i'd like to make it sure that the role of Gregory Haskins is clear
here: he submitted some new infrastructure into the -rt tree, and i
reviewed that but found it quite complex and duplicative and suggested
him to think about enhancing workqueues with priority properties - which
might or might not make sense.

It is not the intention of the -rt project to pester any upstream
maintainer with -rt issues if that upstream maintainer is not interested
in it ... so please just forget about all this if you are not interested
in it, we'll sort it out within -rt. Thanks,
