I have released a couple of "experimental" 2.6.8+ kernels that include
the voluntary preemption patches by Ingo Molnar. They are getting better
all the time. You could try them in your FC2 box by following the
instructions here (if you have already installed Planet CCRMA in your
FC2 box, of course):

Kernels specific for Planet CCRMA are announced in its mailing list. I
guess the place for generic announcements would be the linux kernel

For Planet CCRMA that would be apt-get update; apt-get dist-upgrade. I
have yum support in my list of things to do but have not had time to
implement it yet.
