Well, you should get a better mail account then. gmail for example is
known to work with these mailing lists.

2.6.14 is very ancient, and taken the fact that the i.MX21 is currently
not in the Linux mainline, it sounds like you are using some vendor
patch, which is usually not what is supported on these mailing lists.

ipipe sounds like a Xenomai patch for me. So if it doesn't apply, please
contact the Xenomai mailing list and they may give you better answers
than we here.

Yes. You don't seem to use the code base the patch was made for.

Well, it might happen that you don't get the realtime features you might
expect with ipipe/xenomai.
