Is there already a way to do "hard real time" on NetBSD?
To me, "hard real time" means from an external pin going 'high' to the 1st instruction of my driver executing is on the order of (up to) 10 usec.
Many eons ago, I did this on BSD4.3 VAX 785 and achieved < about 100 usec jitter. It was a Royal Pain to do, since so many places in the kernel turned off interrupts as it massaged various data structures. The pain was to find every one of those and break them down to absolutely minimize the time interrupts were turned off.
I'm especially interested in getting the RPi to operate 'hard real time' on NetBSD. I mainly want to use the RPi to control a robot -- low level as well has higher-level planning/control.
Thanks for any pointers,
