 ... following this thread. There's a point that I'm still confused: the rtnet 

Since 2.6.4, rtnet was another project, that installed its includes (rtnet.h 
and rtmac.h) in its own place. From 3.x rtnet is integrated.

Looking the rtnet.h file, there are declared some #define and some include 
protected by __KERNEL__

My question is:

Using the POSIX wrapper, all the socket functions are wrap. But, how does it 
affect the rtnet part of the code? 

I mean, if I have a rtnet device, what is the difference of manually change all 
the network functions with a -DRTNET protected Realtime versions functions or 
use the wrap?

I understand that if I open a device that it's not rtnet, I lose the Realtime, 
although I open the device with a POSIX wrapped function. That's correct?
