I'm currently running 2.6.11-rc4-RT-V0.7.39-02.  Stock sources plus 
Ingos RT patches.

Since I'm using the ZLM on my delta-1010 I don't run particularly low 
latencies - I have been able to get reliable 5ms(ish) on my now ageing 
1.3GHz Duron.  Apparently there is an issue with my kernel between ext3 
and low-lat performance - which explains why I'm not able to go below 
5ms(ish) reliably.

If I were doing it again I'd either (a) check-out the Gentoo kernels, or 
(b) pick a kernel to match Ingos latest RT patchset.

Best of luck Mark
