This is a rather large update with cherry-picks from the stable tree
and quite a few fixes for long standing problems in the rt patch.

Git release branch:
git:// rt/2.6.33


Information on the RT patch can be found at:

To build the tree, the following patches should be

Enjoy !

This is probably the last update to the 33-rt series.

The next release will be based on 2.6.37, but I'm still in the middle
of a major overhaul of key compononents of the patch. This overhaul is
necessary to make progress in mainlining the missing bits and
pieces. I hope to have it ready not too long after the 2.6.37 mainline
release, but no promise.

At this point I want to say thanks to everyone who supported the
development of the -rt patches with testing, bugfixes, stable
backports etc. in the last years. I hope that I can rely on your help
for the upcoming 37 release and the ongoing effort to merge the patch
fully into the mainline.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
