There is preemption control (cf. section 3.5 of the L4 reference
manual), however, this is not sufficient: clients will generally not
run at a high priority and this is bound to fail on SMP systems.  My
idea was to have the server wait a short time (e.g. 10ms).  If the
client ignored the request, the server would queue the request and
retry it a few more times before giving up.
