Nothing. Then the call into rtkit will simply fail. Since the rtkit
call is intended to be used as fallback only things will work as well
or badly as they did before rtkit was introduced.

Dunno. I disagree. The primary objective for rtkit is to be able to
run media applications as RT by default, out-of-the-box. I doubt that
this feature matters for legacy distros/kernels.

Dunno. All processes that want to have rt need to ask rtkit
themselves. (which is the only safe thing to do, only then we get the
credentials properly defined)
