Is it possible to use the realtime_tools package with Xenomai without any modifications? I'm aware of the fact that the package is compatible with the PREEMPT_RT patch, but would like to know if the package would work with Xenomai just as is.

Could you clarify what sort of modifications you would expect or are wondering about?

Also: could you clarify what you understand by "work with Xenomai"?

Thanks for your reply. What I mean by "work with Xenomai" is if the package would behave in a similar way that it would behave on a system with PREEMPT_RT and continue to be real-time safe. AFAIK, Xenomai has its own API functions that a program needs to use to be real-time. I was wondering if I would need to use those API functions and modify the realtime_tools package to make it real-time safe on a Xenomai system.
