    dozen is an ubiqiuitous standard that is present in most countries and would it really matter wether there were a few dozen patches or 72?

    why do you exactly want a hard-realtime Linux kernel for your needs?

    Any 'realtime' problem like sound or games would benefit. any software without strict RT has to account for underruns which is an absolute pain and if you fail to do so you'll hear audible pops. preemt-rt would allow you to be more certain that loop x will have run by timestamp y

    Just curious:
    Do you have some safety-critical hardware running in your basement or why do you exactly want a hard-realtime Linux kernel for your needs?

    i agree. it's very confusing, specially for non native English people.

    Please make PREEMPT-RT and any other RT efforts get merged in mainline.

    Phoronix: PREEMPT-RT Locking Infrastructure Possibly Ready For Linux 5.15

    Six dozen patches working on the PREEMPT-RT locking infrastructure for real-time kernels is now queued up in TIP's "locking/core" branch and will presumably be sent in for the Linux 5.15 merge window coming up quickly...
