Though that is not the gain of the realtime-lsm module: It just allows
ordinary users to do things, normally only root is allowed to. It does
not give better realtime performance itself. The module has a
misleading name, there's not much "realtime" about it.

But great to hear, that 2.6.10 gives better latencies now. I'll try
soon. (Is cdrecord working again? ;)
