SubjectRe: [patch] latest 'guaranteed low latency' patch against 2.2.14

I installed the patch yesterday and tested overnight, the timings I
am seeing are only slightly different from the 2.2.13 latencies.
For SCHED_FIFO tasks synchronized by signals from setitimer at
50Hz, I measure max scheduling jitter of +/- 640usec. I have stress
tested with heavy disk activity, network traffic, proc accesses, and
kernel rebuilds.

I have not tested SMP latencies. My system specs are:

Linux version 2.2.14 (root@vmebox) (gcc version egcs-2.91.66
19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)) #1 Mon Feb 7 17:39:24 EST 2000

Many thanks for this very nice patch.
