Subject[PATCH RT] time/hrtimer: Use softirq based wakeups for non-RT threads
Date
Normal wake ups (like clock_nanosleep()) which are performed by normal
users can easily lead to 2ms latency spikes if (enough) hrtimer wakeups
are synchronized.
This patch moves all hrtimers wakeups to the softirq queue unless the
caller has a RT priority.
