Subject[patch 1/5] Fix timeout bug in rtmutex in 2.6.18-rt
This patch adds a new interface to the scheduler: A task can be scheduled in 
LIFO order for a while instead of the usual FIFO order. This is more or less
equivalent to raising it's priority by 1/2.

This property is now needed by the rtmutexes to solve the last few issues, but
I can imagine it can be usefull for other subsystems too.
