real time app on l4linux

Hi Adam,

with the real time I was talking about the short response times such as if
an operation takes in linux 1 second, my expectation from microkernel, is
to have less then 1 second. Especially, for the embedded system, where the
microkernel can undertake a critical role, the duration of response time is
extremely important. If you mean, the example will be running separately
will give the same performance, then it is needless to implement it and in
this case my logic is totally wrong! Because with the real time, i was
comparing l4linux with rtlinux.

Thanks for your response!
