No .. The callback doesn't change priorities, it just signals that a
priority has changed. The priority changing is iterative, and there is a
function added to sched.c (not in my patch, but in the RT patch) to
actualy change the priorities. My patch only adds a new structure to the
prioritiy inheritance that was already in the RT patch, I'm not remaking
the actualy PI code.
