And here we are! :-)

The paper Peter pointed you to mainly describes the work I did some
months ago to implement BandWidth Inheritance inside one real-time Linux
variant of us (ReTiS Lab, in Pisa, Italy)... Feel free to ask anything
related to it directly to me.

It is exactly implemented as a "proxy execution" protocol and things
were easy there, since --for now-- the framework I was talking about is
UP-only! :-(

Now we are back on work on it, especially thinking on how to extend the
protocol to SMP architectures...

Nice... Only one question, doesn't this impact with task affinity
related issues?
