1.) Are there any releases with a working RT-like scheduler?
2.) Do you have any other idea to minimize the scheduling-related latency for domain 0?

The SEDF scheduler in the 3.0 tree should allow you to specify RT guarantees. Alternatively, if you have a multi-CPU system, or even hyperthreading, you can dedicate a cpu (or hyperthread) solely to domain0.
