Perhaps it would be worth throwing twin computers at the problem
(they're not _that_ expensive), with one taking over while the
other collects garbage. They could use keepalived, unless that
messes up the real-time performance, in which case it wouldn't
be too hard to roll your own. If it could handle triplets, then
you could maintain real-time in the event of a single failure etc.
