Enclosed a final patch.
One thing I wanted to point out is that the exteneded interface is not
usable for the "rtai" skin since rtf_create() must know a real minor
before calling xnpipe_connect() (at least it's implemented this way at
int rtf_create (unsigned minor, int size)
fifo = __fifo_table + minor; <---- That's the reason!
err = xnpipe_connect(minor,
fifo); <---- it's already dependent on minor.
And I don't think, of course, it's a good idea to export a separate
interface for allocation of minor values from the nucleus. So either:
- rtf_create() should be rewritten differently;
- keep it as is since it looks like the real rtai interface doesn't
require such a functionality.
We need to keep the things as they are for the RTAI skin. The art of emulating an
interface includes mimicking its shortcomings.
