Will try 2.4.13 and report.

I'd like to reduce latency in one specific place which bites me most
(latencies up to 400000usec) coz I use VESA fb:
a BKL in tty_io.c:712 (in do_tty_write()).
It looks like we need to move BKL into write()
and/or replace it with spinlock.
I can't find where that write() func ptr is coming
(tracked it to tty->ldisc.write, but failed to find out
where that field is assigned to).
Somebody enlighten me...

BTW #2:
You're doing excellent work, Robert. Thank you.
