Probably because they don't patch arch/parisc/config.in. Make similar
changes there as it makes to arch/i386/config.in. You'll probably
need to port other changes from include/asm-i386 and arch/i386 too.
It's a big job; more so for preempt than lowlat. But why not try 2.6?
It's already got most of the lowlat stuff integrated and preempt needs
someone to fix it in 2.6 too ;-)
