Subject: Use lower nice level for ksoftirqd when HIL is enabled

Hi team,

The following patch makes sure that ksoftirqd gets a nice level of 15
when HIL is enabled in the kernel. This is to workaround the fact that
ksoftirqd's load is very high when you have HIL devices attached to your
system.

There may be a better way to fix this. However, I think that the load
problem was already looked into long time ago and nothing could be done
about it, hence this workaround.


The attached patch has been tested already by a few Gentoo users.


Cheers,
  Guy
