I'm not sure what you mean.  Priority ceiling is a standard technique
to deal with priority inversion.  Proper scheduling and accounting of
the resources consumed by the daemon require that the daemon binds to
the client's scheduling context when servicing a request so that the
client gets charged and the operation is executed with the right
parameters.  But, even just supporting priority ceiling will help.
