:) I'm sorry - I realize that many of the best kernel developers don't
even post on l-k.  When you see people who are pushing for (and have
written the patches for) a preemptive Linux kernel, and these selfsame
people don't understand priority inversion or think it is a
problem... That's when I *fear* for the future of Linux.

It's like having your car worked on by someone who doesn't think oil
changes are necessary.  "But... I *need* that car... Are you sure you
know what you're doing?"
