But I don't want to "fight" Ingo. There would just be no point
whatsoever with "fighting" with one the best developers Linux
has. I started my involvement in these recent threads with a
very clear statement that I was open to being shown wrong in
having exclusively championed the nanokernel approach in the
past. I set out to show myself wrong with these tests and
beside some vague expectations, I truely didn't know what I
was going to find. I certainly wouldn't have bet a hot-dog on
preempt_rt coming neck-to-neck with the ipipe on interrupt
latency ... So yes, in doing so some results I've found aren't
that nice. But, hell, I didn't invent those results. They are
there for anyone to repdroduce or contradict. I have no
monopoly over LMbench, PC hardware, the Linux kernel, or
anything else used to get those numbers.
