Sure the priority inversion is still there and needs a different fix. But
maybe it'll make everyone else at least a bit happier.

Plus it's really hard to make kms drivers rt, it's not really been part of
the design (nor are gpus really rt friendly, if they even can preempt it
generally takes forever compared to the deadline you might want for some
present work).
