I applied the patch to 2.6.8-rc2 + voluntary-preempt-I4, and am
constantly getting these:

2ms non-preemptible critical section violated 1 ms preempt threshold starting at schedule+0x65/0x5b0 and ending at do_IRQ+0x101/0x170

This seems related to keyboard input; if I keep a key pressed down they

These are similar to the XRUN traces I get from ALSA, so I think there
