One thing which could be a good starting point is testing the various
devel-rt and stable-rt releases. There are a bunch of tests tools in
rt-tests (which could also some love). I am sure you will find things
which are not working in either the kernel or in the rt-tests.

Another related thing is automate the testing. For example I'm using
LAVA[1] to orchistrate my small lab with Linaro's test-definitions[2]
as test harness. Everthing is duck taped together but works pretty
awesome for me. I've created a small (but horrible) python script
which allows me to configure, build and submit the binaries for
testing to LAVA in one go.
