Nope.  The above is fallout of me being inspired me to stare, that
inspiration having come initially from seeing lost wakeup symptoms in
my desktop, telling me something has gone sour in rt-land, so a hunting
I did go.  I expected to find I had made a booboo in my trees, but
maybe not, as I found a suspiciously similar symptom to what I was
looking for in virgin source.

-rt20 is verified to work fine, -rt21 starts hanging with futextest.
 The futex_wait -n 4 testcase was distilled out of seeing the full
futextest/ hanging.  The only symptom I've _seen_ on the DL980 is
futextest hanging.  On the desktop, I've seen more, and may still, I'll
know when I see or don't see desktop gizmos occasionally go comatose.

No no, desktop box will reproduce, but not nearly as reliably as the 8
socket box does, but yes, it seems to work fine on the DL980 when
pinned to one socket.  I was testing 4.9-rt because hunt was in
progress when 4.11-rt was born.
