I wonder if this isn't going to complicate my life maintaining the
linux-rt kernel on AUR.  So far I've tried to track the linux package
closely, but I wonder what repercussions it will have.  Many times it's
also out of sync with the main distro kernel, but I always used to pick
up the patches etc used by the main kernel.

Oh well, nor really a complaint, let's see how it works out in practice.
