Has the RT-rlimits patch been merged into the 2.6.12-rc4 kernel?

FWIW, I compiled and installed this kernel on debian-pure64 box.
Made edits in /etc/security/limits.conf giving audio a rt_priority of
80. Just running pam from debian-pure64.
I can start JACK in realtime mode -R  as root but as normal user I
cannot start JACK using -R flag. If I start JACK as root other apps

Debian Q: What line do I put in /etc/apt/sources.list so I can apt-get
the source for the patched pam from
http://steamballoon.com/pam/debian-testing/ as described by Lee below?

I have tried various things but apt-get update complains about not
finding Sources.gz in the tree.
