Ok, but even if you decide to let rt-mmap be non-deterministic, you
still need some means to prevent the scenario you described above.
Actually, all you need is some callback when the mapped memory block was
actually released (munmap/application exit). Such a callback can be
registered inside the rtdm_mmap handler as a vma_fileop.
I have never worked with vma_fileop... I would need to learn it first.

Here is the patch to offer you access to those ops. Revert the previous
version, then apply this one.

Actually I would have to revert the modifications I had to do for the patch to apply (some rejected chunks). But I think I'll update to the last SVN xenomai. BTW, is this patch for the SVN or 2.1 or 2.0.2 xenomai? Or it would apply for all of them?

It still needs some final documentation
notes and a test on kernel 2.4. But is should already work on 2.6.
I forgot to mention, I have one more problem. Since I call mmap on driver initialization (thus before any rtdm_dev_open), I do not have any rtdm_user_info_t, so I need to use current instead, but I'm not sure if this will work. Maybe mmap needs the 'current' struct of the user program... I don't know this very well... If that is true, so I'll have to do the maps in a non-rt context anyway...

I also attached a demo for the handler usage based on my previous test
framework. Just grab the pattern and put some useful code in the close

It will run in
non-RT, and could be used to mark the related hardware buffer as finally
free for re-allocation.
Now, I did realize that there is one more problem on my current design.
If the user application exits or is terminated, I'm not sure if the
close handler is called if the user forgot/was not able to. If it is
not, the buffer would be marked as used until I reloaded the driver...
Is the close handler invocated on application termination?

Yep, this is a general issue you cannot avoid: all skin objects besides
task are only released when the user-space application cleans it up as
it's ought to. There is no tracking of used resources, no auto-cleanup.
If your application fails to close a device or socket, you will get a
stalled handle which can be found in /proc/xenomai/rtdm/open_files.
Writing the file descriptor number to this particular proc-file (e.g.
"echo 3 > /proc/xeno...") will trigger an enforced close and will
release the file descriptor again. Useful when debugging such broken
Yes, sorry... I forgot I've already read this... :)
