So this is, at this point, kernel version dependent, right?
What happens if you run a 2.6.29.x kernel?
The question is relevant, I think, as the kernels that I use (Planet
CCRMA) are the rt patched kernels, currently limited to 184.108.40.206 (I
think Thomas and the rt gang are working on 2.6.30, I imagine 2.6.31
support is still far in the future).
If I understand correctly then the mechanism would not be useful for
jack (leaving aside the issue of SCHED_RR vs. SCHED_FIFO), as jack
actually gives rt priority to threads in other processes (the clients of
jack). But maybe things have changed in the way jack works internally
these days, or, possibly I'm not completely understanding the
implications... hmmmmm... jack does not do any forking right?

How are all those limits set up and/or configured?
