GStreamer has always been an application that did not use ugly hacks to
improve performance. It has always left scheduling up to the kernel.
Since the Linux kernel without low-latency patches has quite some issues
wrt correct scheduling, this used to lead to problems.
I have not heard about problems from people running 2.6 kernels however.
