I would like to apply real time patch on the Android kernel (given I've found Kernel patch for corresponding Kernel version). Is it possible or should I create a patch specifically for the purpose of patching Android kernel?

I know this question might sound trivial to many of you but I'm not into operating system, rather programming languages.

Out of curiosity, why would you want to do that? – Alexios Jun 28 '12 at 9:36
I need some of the real-time functionalities for my project (pipe memory allocation). – ΔλЛ Jun 28 '12 at 9:40
I recommend that you try it, then you can tell us. – bahamat Jun 28 '12 at 9:47
