Hi Wolfgang,

some more comments after looking at code and running a compiler:

...thus multiple times in the same IRQ context if there are multiple
packets pending. Do we gain enough from the new design that helps to
compensate the drawback (considering slow rtdm_clock_read()
implementations)? Moreover, we may see a feature one day that the RTDM
layer will provide you timestamps for an IRQ event (e.g. when the
handler will be running at higher latency as a thread).

Suggestion: N x "depends on XYZ" => 1 x "if XZY != n ... endif"

rtcan_peak_dng.c: In function `rtcan_peak_dng_exit_one':
rtcan_peak_dng.c:315: warning: implicit declaration of function

[Not related to this change]
In order to use the parport dongle also with recent PnP ports (e.g. in
notebooks), you may want to have a look at the code I added to irqbench
for this purpose:


The background is that once you unload the parport module, the port will
be powered off.

Hmm, wouldn't shortening some file names also make sense then?


PS: 2.4 help patching and updating work nicely for me - except for
choices which is obviously a 2.4 bug. I saw that the kernel then
sometimes stuffs all information into the first item. Maybe scriptable
for Xenomai... :->
