Yes, perhaps I also misread your question. AFAIK Fedora packagers only 
will maintain one and only one kernel. There is no opening for a second 
kernel - I think our hope is that at some point the rt patches will be 
fully migrated into mainline. But even then I imagine full rt support 
will be hard to get enabled in the regular Fedora build.
