Real-time scheduling sets the niceness, or scheduling priority, of the
application to a real-time priority. Basically, it makes your
application the most important thing your OS is running. Basically,
don't set it to use realtime if you don't know what your program might
do as it could lock it up.

To allow non-root users to set this, edit /etc/security/limits.conf
and add this line:
@usrp  - rtprio 50
