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.
