I believe it should, it's just a LSB init script. When properly installed
it consists on only two files:

  /etc/sysconfig/rtirq <- rtirq.conf (configuration)
  /etc/init.d/rtirq    <- rtirq.sh   (the script)

As I'm not fluent in debianese I don't have a clue if this is supposed to
work as-is on debian. Isn't debian LSB compliant? ;)

For the reference, the most recent and original rtirq packages are found in:
