We'll give an overview over the ongoing development of the realtime preemption patch including our mainlining activities.
Everyone interested in preempt RT development
Thomas Gleixner is a long time Linux kernel hacker with embedded background and a strong affinity to impossible missions. He is (Co)Maintainer for x86, everything about timers, generic interrupt subsystem and some more in the Linux Kernel. Furthermore he desperately keeps the real-time preemption patch in shape and merges it piecewise into the mainline kernel.
Sebastian Siewior maintains the Preempt-RT patchset for several years as part of his work for Linutronix, and once he even ported -RT to m68knommu. Two years ago he presented what it means to play catch up with mainline with the -RT patchset at Linux Plumbers.
