I don't think so, at least for 2.6.24/x86*.

Even if we do have an experimental patch for 2.6.24-rc1/x86, it would
make sense to go for a combo x86_32/64 bit support patch for 2.6.24
directly. To get that, I'd rather take the needed time to properly merge
both I-pipe branches without any release deadline pressure, and since we
already have the proper infrastructure available in 2.4-rc to run over
the latest x86* kernels, we may provide support for 2.6.24 during the
Xenomai 2.4 maintenance cycle anyway.
