    Obviously compiling a kernel with preemptiong introduces additional
    overhead to guarantee more deterministic behavior. Additional overhead
    increases latencies generated by the OS in general. Compile a kernel
    without preemption and it will run faster and thus have lower latencies.

    Realtime avoids high latency spikes but in general increases average OS
