[RFC] status of [meta-]xenomai for Yocto

I'd like to discuss the current status of what exists, what might be
planned regarding a meta layer which would/does provide support for
Xenomai-enabled kernels. This could be a topic raised during the next
community meeting.

I can see a couple of options floating around on the net, all dedicated
to specific hardware it seems, some/all extending their support up to
the rootfs image.

Would it be possible to conceive such support as a meta-bsp layer
instead, implementing a new kernel type, one that could be included in
bbconf settings without imposing anything about the image to be
produced?  Something which could be extended to cover Xenomai 4/EVL at
some point as well.

It would be nice to discuss ideas around the general topic of having a
reference meta layer for Xenomai in the most flexible way. Whether it
already exists, or not.
