The amusing part is that the chrt command is probably interesting ONLY
in the case where the sched_* functions are non-conforming. The POSIX
versions are virtual no-ops on systems without the process contention
scope (all they do is save and read back some data addressed by pid)
and nearly no-ops even with the process contention scope.

As such, I don't think the warning here makes sense...
