Hi Jan, it just happened once and I couldn't reproduce (I didn't want to 
reproduce it too since I would need to restart my computer because the driver 
wouldn't unload)...

When it happened I forgot to start the timer running the latency program and 
my driver failed to load and due to some mistake I've made (I have not 
indentified it yet), it crashed on rmmoding. I need to check this, but I 
still think it is a good idea to make the sanity checks...

I have not written the user-space program yet, so you'll have to wait until 
monday, when I'll be able to test it, hopefully. But it seems to be 
working... I changed my driver design. I do the mmap's on driver 
initialization and just pass the returned addresses on the IOCTL, so I can do 
them in a RT-context. The problem is that even if the user call an IOCTL to 
munmap, it will still be possible to him to continue using the provided 
address and this would result in a problem. But, as in all situations, there 
are trade-offs and I prefer to rely on the user, while providing a 
RT-MMAP-IOCTL. Of course it isn't really a mmap, but if the user don't mess 
with the pointers, it will work like if it was...

Hope you understood me, I wrote it a little confusing... :)

Until monday! ;)

Rodrigo.
