Not directly your fault: the increasing number of return flags for IRQ

In the later case, rt_intr_create() now contains the 6-th argument,
namely "int mode".

Now I'm waiting for the test results from Jan (the previous patch-set
remains to be suitable for testing too in case you are using it
already). Upon success, the new code is ready for merging.

Trying to manage the priority list of someone else is tricky - I hope we
can see something soon, but I cannot promise anything.

the patches have to be applied as follows :
- shirq-base
- shirq-v8
- shirq-proc
- shirq-edge
- shirq-ext

Happy testing ! :)
My concern is code size. I see that the patches add substantial amount
of code to the ISR. What about make this feature configurable?

I would vote for the (already scheduled?) extension to register an
optimised IRQ trampoline in case there is actually no sharing taking
place. This would also make the "if (irq == XNARCH_TIMER_IRQ)" path

I still prefer configuration options as they also allow to reduce the overall code size (less cache refills and TLB misses). And shared interrupts are for x86 only (approximately), I think. Unfortunately, I don't have the time to follow all the details of the rapid Xenomai development and can't therefore judge what is really necessary.
