As said in the other mail, this could be done, just let me know as much
as you can how you think it should happen (scheduling class, scheduling
policy, two (or more) separate queues, ecc.

Btw, Dhaval introduced me to the obscure world of IRC... I am (if
everything worked! :-P) dariof on #sched and/or #sched-rt, so feel free
to contact me even there, if at te PC I'll be glad to discuss even
