Yes, I think so as well. The menu naming comes from the history of the
build system (Xenomai).

That driver shouldn't be part of rtdm-native, it's for stress-testing
the Xenomai nucleus.

At least in 2.6.20, hrtimer_init_sleeper() is not exported to modules.
Hmm, maybe Wolfgang tested both as built-in components, but that would
just be a workaround.

Would love to, but short on time...

You may want to start by playing with irqbench [1] (IRQ latency tests
across nullmodem or laplink cable) or with the CAN stack, for which
xeno_can_virt offers you a virtual local bus of two CAN interfaces [2].
