SubjectRe: [patch] Real-Time Preemption, -RT-2.6.12-rc1-V0.7.41-01

regarding this code:

void synchronize_kernel(void)
{
long oldbatch;
smp_mb();
oldbatch = rcu_ctrlblk.batch;
schedule_timeout(HZ/GRACE_PERIODS_PER_SEC);

what is the intent of that schedule_timeout() - a fixed-period delay? Is
that acceptable? In any case, it wont do what you think it does, you
should use mdelay(), or do current->state = TASK_UNINTERRUPTIBLE -
otherwise the call will just return when we are in TASK_RUNNING.
