Hmm, this seems fine for me:
 wget https://cdn.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/v4.x/linux-4.19.94.tar.xz
 tar -xf linux-4.19.94.tar.xz
 cd linux-4.19.94/
 wget http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/kernel/projects/rt/4.19/patch-4.19.94-rt38.patch.xz
 unxz patch-4.19.94-rt38.patch.xz
 patch -p1 < patch-4.19.94-rt38.patch
 make ARCH=armhf defconfig
