Hi Philippe,

How about this patch? Or something like, if you prefer...

I really think that we should keep the /proc output as terse as
possible, but properly documenting the corresponding information in the
same move (which is not the case yet), so that we don't embed excessive
"dead" data into the kernel, but rather have a some accurate
documentation about it.

Best Regards,

Please, what do MSW and CSW mean on /proc/xenomai/stats?

MSW = Mode switches: primary->secondary/secondary->primary (actually,
I'm going to only leave the first one)

CSW = Context switches (operated by Xenomai for real-time threads,
kernel + user-space).

Sorry if it is documented somewhere but I didn't find it on docs...
