All kernels from Planet CCRMA include the realtime capabilities kernel
module. That allows you to use things like Jack with realtime scheduling
and memory locking without having to run them as root. 

It is not currently possible to add that module to the standard Fedora
kernels because one of the configuration options conflicts with it.
