Yes:

root@mindpipe:/home/rlrevell/kernel-source/kernel-source-2.6.7# grep . /proc/sys/kernel/*_preemption
/proc/sys/kernel/kernel_preemption:1
/proc/sys/kernel/voluntary_preemption:1

My testing also uncovered a possible bug in the emu10k1 driver, I am
looking into this. I don't think it's related because the log entries
are spaced minutes apart. Could this be a driver problem? Hardware?

Just as a reference point, what do you think is the longest delay I
*should* be seeing? I recall hearing that BEOS guaranteed that
interrupts are never disabled for more than 50 usecs. This seems
achievable, as the average delay I am seeing is 15 usecs.

I will set CONFIG_FRAME_POINTER=Y and CONFIG_4KSTACKS=n and test some
more.
