Since yesterday is old, and yesterday's kernels aren't interesting,
here's a fresh one: 3.0.1-rt8.

Hmmm, what are reasonable values for CONFIG_RCU_BOOST_PRIO and CONFIG_RCU_BOOST_DELAY? (or at least what are you using?). I think CONFIG_RCU_BOOST should be working now so I should reenable the option for my next build.

Aside from the obvious rebase to 3.0.1 changes include:

- a fix from Rostedt for his cpupri rework involving memory ordering
- a fix from me regarding this highmem muck, seeing as I mostly
wrecked things last time around :-)
- some lockdep annotations from upstream for things people were
seeing here as well
- a patch from Clark adding a sysfs file to recognize a PREEMP_RT
kernel for udev -- is there really no saner solution !?
- and a fresh raw_spinlock_t conversion of cpufreq_driver_lock, done
just minutes before releasing this, to keep life interesting.

Still working on the known issues from last time..

The patch is at:
