SubjectRe: Real-Time Preemption and UML?
Well, I keep trying a little bit more. In the mean while you can get some
of the stuff I needed to change to at least get it to compile:

One of the problems was use of direct architecture specific semaphores
(which doesn't work under PREEMPT_REALTIME) and in places where a quick
(maybe too quick) look at the code told me that completions ought to be
used. Therefore I changed two semaphores to completions which compiled
fine. I have tried the change on 2.6.11-rc2, and it seemed to work, but I
have not tested it heavily.

The patch is in an attachment - I hope the mail-list will alow that. It is
simply too trouplesome otherwise when I am using Pine as mail client.
