Ok, I have found this

Is this what you are talking about?

xntimerq_head is the next timer which is going to fire, this is not
necessarily attached to a task, and even if it was, there is no
guarantee that nothing else will happen between now and this next event.
Another task may be woken up by an interrupt, or even by the current
task, tasks are not necessarily time-triggered.

xntimerh_date(&timer->aplink) only works for aperiodic timers.

I think you are looking in the wrong direction. What you really need is
to implement a new scheduler class (EDF with OTE or something like
that), and implement things in this abstraction, not by patching

Also note that the default scheduler classes (FIFO and RR) do their job
without knowing what the WCET of a task is, and from what I saw,
skimming the document mentioned above, you need this information, so,
you absolutely need a new scheduler class.
