Ok, it already applied cleanly on last svn version. I'll reboot my computer
and test it. That is something I didn't like in 2.1 series... I always have
to recompile the kernel and to reboot when a new xenomai release is available
(unless I'm missing something)... On the previous series I just compiled it
as modules and it was only necessary to recompile the kernel when a new adeos
(ipipe) version was available...

Do you mean that if I use the 'current' and current->mm struct of the driver,
when mmaping, the user won't be able to use the returned pointer?

Actually, that is the way I was planning for making the maping in a
deterministic way...

That is not a question of noting any difference or not... An application can
works great most of the time but it can fail under some not common
circunstances. The user will need to know, at least, that he will can not
rely on rt-capabilities when doing that and will be forced to do that only on
initialization. But that is ok for most cases. I think I'll do that (I do not
have other options at all :) ).
