Actually this is only a tiny part of this work and adequate improvement in
many different scheduler tweaks have already addressed this. This is now more
about maintaining good all round interactivity and fairness. Improving audio
beyond ordinary scheduling tweaks is another issue which may lead to some
form of soft user RR task. su tasks already can be reniced or made RR to

Your concerns are well founded. However neither Ingo nor I (and all the other
contributors) are trying to make an audio app scheduler. At some stage a
modification will be made to the mainline kernel which will have adequate
audio performance in many (but not all) settings, and more importantly be
fair and interactive.
