I have a box with this hardware:

00:1f.6 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (2) I219-LM 
(rev 31)

I would like to make it work with RTNet. It's a quite new hardware, that for 
example, 4.1.8 doesn't support. The driver is the e1000e.

Looking on the sources of Xenomai, I have seen that the rt_drivers seems very 
similar to the original ones but with some wrapped functions, some defines, and 
changed struct net device by struct rtnet device. However, I must admit that 
I'm not a kernel hacker and I'm not comfortable with this kind of code.

I have been surfing on the web but I not not seen any guide to convert a linux 
driver to RTnet. So my questions are:

- there's any recommendation to do that job?
- do you have some plans to update new drivers, especially e1000e?

Best regards,
