Default Re: Unified Xen and real-time preemption patch for 1.0-9625

Is there still someone working on this patch? Sadly I am unable to find a patch for newer realtime-preempted kernels and even with this patch the nvidia driver fails to install on 2.6.20-rt3:

       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux

The patch applied without any errors, but as you can easily see the driver module won't build.
Is there a new patch available or will anyone make a new patch?
