Including low-latency kernel will require quite a bit of overhead
including making sure it builds and works on most architectures.  That
will mean I (or somebody else) will have to hack kernel on ppc and
amd64 architectures which are less tested for -RT trees.

I think it's something to discuss with debian-kernel guys.

What would be the implication of including kernel images of
low-latency kernel variation into Debian?

I'm Cc'ing debian-kernel for input.
