Linux pthread priority real time scheduler (SCHED_RR) doesn't seem work properly


Platform: HP dc7900 (intel), Debian distribution (2.6 kernel)
Problem: Create two pthreads with priority 40 and 60. Respective counter (count0 or count 1) gets incrtemented when it is scheduled to run. Main routine prints the two counters every second. Unexpected behaviour is that counter for the first pthread becomes even bigger. Expected behaviour is that the first pthread (pri 40) should be completely blocked by the second pthread (pri 60) since it is lower priority and second thread doesn't block by itself. Need help to understand what is going on.

Code and output are as follows:

===============================

Thread created successfully

First thread processing

Second thread processing

Thread created successfully
223891966 11374955

pthread_t tid[2];
int pid[ 2 ] = { 1, 2 };
int count0, count1;
