Thanks for your contribution! We can consider adding this, I would just like to 
double-check first if there aren't also patch-free ways today:

I always wanted to try out the runtime tunings described e.g. on 
to see if we could relax our build-time feature-exclusion set and rather do that 
tuning e.g. on Xenomai application startup.

Would you be interested in in playing with such an approach?
