'Twas brillig, and Scott Reeves at 21/01/11 00:06 did gyre and gimble:
> It appears the return values for set_scheduler and set_nice are not
> correctly checked in the case where the initial request failed. This
> caused pa_make_realtime to incorrectly log that real time status was
> achieved (albeit one level lower than requested) when it actually was
> not. Painful as it covered up an incorrectly configured rtkit setup
> on a system.
> The attached patch fixes the problem.

Good catch. Thanks Scott.
