Segmentation fault

This looks like it's due to some timer - mplayer opens /dev/rtc if you want
to know. A second invocation of mplayer went fine, I guess due to
/dev/rtc still having a refcount of >0 and therefore not able to be opened

AFA-IIRC this did not happen with (my own portage of) 2.6.15-rc5-rt4 into
2.6.15-rc7 (on the very day that rc7 was released).
If you need config.gz/.config or other info, please let me know.

I also notice that mplayer uses approximately a lot more CPU, as shown in
top when CONFIG_HIGH_RES_TIMERS=y. That is, without highres timers, mplayer
uses less than 1%, with hrt it's somewhere between 10% and 18%.
I practically just ran the decoding routine:
`mplayer -ao null sometrack.ogg`.
