SubjectRe: [Announce] 2.6.29-rc7-rt1
Date
Hi 

It is great to see that the -rt patchset is moving again.

> http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/patch-2.6.29-rc7-rt1.bz2
This should be
http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/patch-2.6.29-rc7-rt1.patch.bz2

As far as i understand this is again for x86. I tried some patches to get the
ARM platform working as the platform i am working on (phytec i.mx31) is not
supported by the stable 2.6.26-rt release. The attached patches are for
reference only as i think some of them are on their way via the pengutronix
git tree and others are just hacks to get this thing compile. These patches
enable rt functionality as tested with cyclictest but the kernel is not
stable, so some pieces are missing.

So my question is, what pieces are missing on the ARM platform to get it working?

Regards
Tim

The following patches are against the 2.6.29-rc4-rt2 in an attempt to get ARM working.

- This option reduces the latency of the kernel when reacting to
