In case no one comes up with an easy, portable way to detect remapped memory as well: What about some flags the caller of rtdm_mmap_to_user has to pass, telling what kind of memory it is? Would simplify the RTDM part, and the user normally knows quite well where the memory came from. And I love to break APIs. :) I'm CC'ing the first users of this service to ask for some feedback from their POV. Hope gna does not -once again- mangles the CCs. Jan
