Yep, I talked with Sebastian on IRC and that seems to be the case.

Yeah, when I looked at the -rt version, it appeared to have my fix
already. But in reality, the forward port broke it. Here's the problem
part of the commit:

+       set_load_weight(p);
-       p->normal_prio = normal_prio(p);
-       p->prio = rt_mutex_getprio(p);

Your patch never deleted the above two. And it kept them in the
locations that I placed them in, in my patch.
