what do you mean? do you see mode switches when you run them?
I havent executed them in a while but as far as I remember some of them were.

could you point me where?

if you want a 101 example have a look at this control program

it opens an rtdm driver that generates a PWM signal using a GPIO

The control program spawns two threads one to set the PWM signal base
configuration and another one to change the duty cycle (either automatically or
via user control, optional vi command line)

The driver presents a rt path to change the duty cycle and start/stop the PWM
signal (so no mode switches, always running in primary mode) and a non-rt path
to set the config.
The config has to be in a non-rt path since the kernel framework to configure
the GPIO requires some non-rt linux services.

It doesnt get any simpler than that I believe.
