that patch. It's not debian specific but part of Thomas Gleixner's

Correct. IIRC the 'threadirq' option was introduced in vanilla 2.6.39
when a large part of the tasklet-threading code was merged into Linus'
tree. This option was not present for linux-kernels (incl PREEMPT_RT
patched kernels) before 2.6.39.

You don't really have no choice:
When you configure your kernel with the PREEMPT_RT patch,
PREEMPT_RT_FULL depends on CONFIG_IRQ_FORCED_THREADING and forces it
anyway (PREEMPT_RT_BASE does not).

If you compile a recent kernel (>=3.0) with the PREEMPT_RT patch and set
"CONFIG_IRQ_FORCED_THREADING=y", the boot-option 'threadirqs' is implied
and using it makes no difference.
