Let's say I have the software to run a robot implemented in Linux. My route plotting software is implemented in userland, and I've carefully written it so that it has a worst case time to reroute the robot in 50ms in an emergency, so it will never collide with a human.
Oops, my cpu got yanked away from me in the middle of that and now I ran someone over.
