And so does kdbus. By default, strict ordering is enforced when messages
are received, but optionally, that action may be constrained to messages
of a minimal priority. This allows for use cases where timing critical
data is interleaved with control data on the same connection. That's
described in kdbus.message(7), and is also covered by test cases.
