I still don't see why it should succeed every time: What about
the case that the Linux kernel on CPU0 updates the data, while
Xenomai accesses them on another CPU? This can lead to
inconsistent data, and they must be reread on the Xenomai side.

I'm asking because if this case can not happen, then there's
nothing left to to as I have the code already at hand.

Thanks, Wolfgang
