i have released the -V0.7.33-0 Real-Time Preemption patch, which can be
downloaded from the usual place:


this is mainly a port from -rc2-mm3 to -rc3-mm1. Changes:

- due to 2.6.10 release work the -mm kernel now is in fixes-mostly mode,
but there's one interesting new feature: -rc3-mm1 introduced the
->unlocked_ioctl method which is now an official way to do BKL-less
ioctls. I changed the ALSA ->ioctl_bkl changes in -RT to use this
facility. The ALSA/sound guys might be interested in these bits. Thus
another chunk of -RT could go upstream.

- IO-APIC/MSI fix from Steven Rostedt.

- fixed a tracer bug which would produce a kernel warning and an empty
/proc/latency_trace if the trace buffer overflows.

to create a -V0.7.33-0 tree from scratch, the patching order is:
