Yes, this should still be listed.

I just tested against 2.6.29-rc5 and the problem is as bad as ever
(perhaps worse?)

--- hermes-old.wumi.org.au ping statistics ---
900 packets transmitted, 448 received, +317 errors, 50% packet loss, time 899845ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.131/420.015/10890.699/1297.022 ms, pipe 11
The guest being pinged crashed during the test - the QEMU monitor was
accessible, but the guest didn't respond to "sendkey alt-sysrq-s", etc.
This was the last thing in the guest syslog after reboot:

I think I saw some patches to fix the latency tracer for non-RT tasks on
the mailing list a while ago. If that's still going to be a useful test,
can someone give me some hints on which kernel tree and/or patches to
download to get that working? The simpler you can make it, the better ;)

Cheers,
Kevin.
