	My laptop run RTLinux from time to time. It is just another
 kernel-patch. No different than an ac patch, or the preemptible

	Certainly not enough to justify calling it two kernels.

	In one short day, you have dissed the Linux build processes,
 the Debian packaging of kernel packages, and demonstrated a
 surprising juxtaposition of arrogant confidence in your opinion along
 with a surprising lack of knowledge of what you speak about.

	Way to go.
