dear Mr Jan,

For me there are following difficulties to follow the solutions given in 
i) I cant remove the ethernet ports(handled by Linux) since they are also 
integral part of my project.
ii) I am using some 15 boards in my project, which are going to use 
different lines. so some one surely share the interrupt line with ethernet.
iii) I am also confuse about the ethernet interrupts. when they comes, since 
ethernet works on polling mode. why i m getting continous interrupt with or 
without network is connected or not.
iv) If I am returning 0 , what does it exactly means, what it will do?
v) If I not down ethernet ports interrupt are coming continuously, and since 
unhandled they are making system hangs.
vi) how the unhandled shared irq part is implemented in Xenomai.

With Regards
Kapil Jain
