  While it has been a while since I compiled a kernel, I think you might
want to look at this if you are looking for stable...


Essentially the PREEMPT_RT patches are only considered stable at this time
on up to 2.6.26, the newer stuff should be considered dev.  At least if I
understood the article correctly.  At any rate this is probably where I
would start if I was going to compile one today from scratch.
