This isn't the best example; the only reason this did not get noticed is that everyone who needs this feature is still using the rejected-from-mainline realtime LSM while waiting for the distros to catch up.

Kernel testing and regressions: an example

I have to say that's kind of the point: by the time you get it from your distributor, it's a bit late to be testing it. Part of the process of making the kernel (or any other project) better is to test things before they get set into a stable release, and that is especially true for new features.

Updated pam and glibc that know about RLIMIT_RTPRIO and RLIMIT_NICE are avaiable in Fedora's rawhide. (And a hacked pam for Fedora Core 4 from Planet CCRMA.)

I still don't get Ingo Molnar's statement that
"... RLIMIT_RTPRIO is completely non-functional in 2.6.12" thought.

If it was completely non-functional should this work?

$ chrt -r 20 bash
$ ps -eo rtprio,comm | grep bash
     - bash
    20 bash
