Did you check if RTnet already has support for your NIC? Then you are
fine with a stack of rtnet.ko, rtpacket.ko, and <your-nic>.ko.

If not, there are two options
 - add an RTnet driver for you hardware
 - implement some home-brewed stack

The second option may only look different on first sight. But,
specifically if your application is not kernel-hosted but a proper
userspace app, RTnet provides quite a few useful building blocks for
your scenario.
