Let me add that "#2" really works very well.  You do need to start the 
RC5 client with a separate program which sets the schedule class to the
new "SCHED_IDLE" scheduling class.

It's fairly trivial to hack the program "rt" to do this, or one of the
other real-time scheduling programs to support SCHED_IDLE.  

If you're interested in details, please email me with private email.
