    Sound isn't really a real time application.  It's more a near-real-time
    application.  You don't need preemption, you just need to give it
    scheduling priority.

    A few milliseconds of lag either way wouldn't be noticed.  I think you
    need upwards of 10+ ms of lag before you start to notice desynchronization
    with people's lips.
