.. Thank you Tom but I've the 99% of my work based on the
kernel (that was the latest 'stable' at the moment of starting my work
:( ).
Only a little question, just another example, please..
I'm seeing a
'light' but It's not enough for me :), some questions:

- Kernel puts many tasks in this queues under certain conditions,
that's ok?
What kind of tasks? tq_immediate is an intend to make 'real time'
beliving to linux?...

Maybe they seem silly questions for you but they're important for me.
