I just compiled a kernel with your .config and got a few surprises:
- 2.6.29-rt1-ccrma works just fine with "irqbalance"
- over here it shuts down and halts the system even without
"noreplace-smp" (intel core duo in a Thinkpad X60s)
- using x86 generic compatibility dramatically increases the size
kernel+modules MCORE2: 21MB ; i686+x86-generic: 250MB !
