  Description     : Reduces the latency of the Linux kernel

 This patch adds a far greater degree of real-time responsiveness to the
 standard Linux kernel, by finding "hot spots" in the scheduling code and
 trying to reduce their impact. It can get latencies down to 1 to 4 ms in
 most situations.
 It can be applied to the following Linux kernel sources:
 2.4.13, 2.4.14, 2.4.15, 2.4.16, 2.4.17, 2.4.18, 2.4.19, 2.4.20 and 2.4.21.
