Therefore, we have been setting up a Xenomai Co-Kernel on the boards. To actually send and receive UDP-packets, we want to use lwIP instead of RTnet, because we are already using it on other boards.

This doesn't sound like a strong argument. You should better look for hard 
facts, what benefits (or downsides) an lwIP stack would have. Then it is more 
realistic to weigh estimated efforts on both sides against benefits.

Also, who should be the low-level driver provider in your lwIP setup? Do you 
plan to write one from scratch?
