What about moving that scheduling parameter settings into the
trampoline? Some legacy RTOS libs would still have to be adapted.

Hmm, everything has it's pros and cons, but mostly you are right. Here
is a new proposal, please tell me if it's acceptable so that I can
rebase the rest:

--- xenomai.orig/include/nucleus/types.h
+++ xenomai/include/nucleus/types.h
@@ -62,8 +62,13 @@ typedef int (*xniack_t)(unsigned irq);

 #define XN_INFINITE   (0)
 #define XN_NONBLOCK   ((xnticks_t)-1)
-#define XN_RELATIVE   0
-#define XN_ABSOLUTE   1
+/* Timer modes */
+typedef enum xntmode {
+       XN_RELATIVE,
+       XN_ABSOLUTE,
+} xntmode_t;

 #define XN_NO_TICK         ((xnticks_t)-1)

Last issue pending is the xintr locking thing. Will try to have a closer
look again and kick Dmitry for some more explanations of his patch.
