Updated Red Hat Enterprise MRG Realtime packages that add one enhancement are

MRG Realtime provides the highest levels of predictability for consistent
low-latency response times to meet the needs of time-sensitive workloads. MRG
Realtime provides new levels of determinism by optimizing lengthy kernel code
paths to ensure that they do not become bottlenecks. This allows for better

times for high-priority applications.
