Hi Vivek,

Would you explain a bit what do you mean about "both new queue and old queue 
are at same level to take a preemption decision". I don't understand it well.

  Yes, i also have this concern. So, it does not allow non-rt group preempts
  another group. I'll check whether there is a way to address this issue.
