"> it *does* make a difference

no one using it, cause your system getting slower and unstable. yes, it does make a difference and a big stupid one in your brain"

I have no choice but to use it. Without preemt the kernel can spend >30ms locked. The software I am using requires <8ms latency. Preempt solves this problem, and keeps it in the 1-3ms range.

Now, what stability and throughput problems have you had?
