Does anyone know if it is necessary to use the "atropos-replacement"
scheduler if you want to guarantee that:

(a) ... other domains will not cause audio skipping when playing from
a hard drive in dom0?

(b) ... other domains will not cause buffer underruns during CD burning?
(theoretically, modern CD burners should have buffer underrun protection,

Or are xen context switches so frequent that they are unlikely to have an
effect on either of these scenarios?
