Package: linux-2.6.30-1-686
Severity: normal

I just discovered that the Debian kernel packages do not have preemption

# CONFIG_PREEMPT is not set

Some checking suggests that this choice dates back to the very early 2.6
kernel days, when preemption still represented an experimental option
and much kernel code still needed fixing to work properly with it.  That
has not held true for a very long time, and CONFIG_PREEMPT now
represents the more common kernel configuration.

Please consider switching from CONFIG_PREEMPT_NONE to CONFIG_PREEMPT.
