No, it's not a problem because if a real-time system designer puts a
real-time task under SCHED_RR, he will calculate the length of the
critical section by taking into account the slice.

For the case of one SCHED_RR task sharing a critical section with one
SCHED_NORMAL task, the worst-case blocking time of the SCHED_RR task
is found by multiplying the critical section execution time taking
into account the slice by two.
