I decided to just enable everything, as I got a lockup within 5 minutes of
using the patch. The new options have made the BUG warning a bit more
verbose, and I thought I'd share the information in case it's useful.

Then it continues to boot. I'm getting periodic lockups under high network
load, however, though I suspect that might be the ipw2200 driver I compiled
against the realtime-preempt kernel. Are there any known issues with external
modules versus PREEMPT-RT?

Any way to debug these problems?
