Ingo's RT patches simply make the performance of a system using
SCHED_FIFO-scheduled threads *better*. They have *absolutely nothing* to
do with whether or not a normal user can successfully execute a program
that wants to use SCHED_FIFO. that is determined by other non-kernel
elements of your system (which parts varies by distro, but primarily PAM
on most current distros).
