Hi all... some new kernels and matching alsa packages for both Fedora
Core 2 and 3. These kernels are in the "edge" category as they include
Ingo Molnar's realtime preemption patch. 

As usual a _WARNING_, if you are happy with the current kernel and alsa
drivers don't upgrade :-)

So... what's included?

- 2.6.11-0.3.rdt: base kernel is + realtime preempt 0.7.40-04
- alsa packages based on 1.0.9rc1
  . alsa-lib-jack-plugin is replaced by the alsa-plugins package,
    as there is no tarball yet of alsa-plugins, the package was
    created from a cvs download
  . alsa-firmware is still at version 1.0.8
  . the drivers include patches by Lee Revell to fix non-Audigy2
    soundcards (there's a bad bug in the official 1.0.9rc1
    release that hangs computers with those cards)
  . on FC3 the location of the alsa libraries and the 
    configuration files now match the official alsa-lib
  . alsa packages are also available for 2.6.10-2.1.ll
- rtirq: small change in the priority of the startup script to
         make it execute after the alsasound script, thanks to
         Mark Knetch for noticing this...

As usual, feedback is welcome...
