I am not very familiar with the RT work, so please forgive me for some
rookie questions.

From the result, I think the CONFIG_PREEMPT_VOLUNTARY=y and the
CONFIG_PREEMPT=y cases failed to preempt during the preempt enabled period in
raid6_choose_gen(). Is this expected?

OTOH, the 16ms latency with CONFIG_PREEMPT_RT=y is more or less expected.
Is this acceptable? If not, is 1ms latency acceptable?

Thanks,
Song
