I few weeks  ago I've checked out  the source of the linux-2.6 package
(BTW, nice work!) from the SVN  repository, and adding more flavors is
just a  matter  of modifying the  debian/arch configuration  files. It
should not be difficult at all.

I'm just   wondering  if we  should include   these low-latency kernel
packages in the current linux-2.6  source package,  or rather clone  a
new one in some  smart way. If  other Custom Debian Distributions need
their own kernels, including  everything in one single source  package
could turn to be a not very scalable approach.
