Can we also add the RT-PREEMPT kernel patch as such a kernel extension?
I have successfully tried the 3.0.1-rt patch in buildroot a while ago
and as far as I can see there is now a patch for 3.0.4 (3.0.4-rt13). It
should be available from here (if kernel.org wasn't down):


It would probably make sense to include the option to download and use
this patch in the new menu. There are some changes to the kernel
configuration necessary as well, as explained here:


Would there be interest to add this? We are not actually using this, so
I am not sure if I could find the time to prepare the necessary changes.
But having this available in buildroot might make it easier for us and
other to experiment with the RT-PREEMPT kernel.
