* Real-Time Benchmarking - an Open, Cross-Language Micro-Benchmark Suite

Discussion on a new real-time micro-benchmark suite and how it can help real-time overcome some challenges it faces, such as making apples-to-apples comparisons with other platforms, and how various programming languages compare in the real-time arena.

* Lazy boot

The moral of the story is, we still load too much stuff, and it takes too long to do it. Users (and developers) want time to go down, while things continue to get more complicated. How can we sort that out?

* Power management: Communicating needs and desires

Implementing power management is the job of the kernel - however, it's userspace's job to let it know what functionality is needed. What interfaces do we need to expose, and how should userspace be making use of them?
