Steve: there is already a realtime kernel available for Planet CCRMA on
FC9 and it is based on 2.6.25.x. The one I was talking about is based on
2.6.24.x which is older but seems (in some tests in my laptop) to behave
better with my hardware (no, I have not yet found the time to do the
build, I want to change the spec file so that the resulting package
follow the fc9 naming...).
