Since it was just 5 minutes work and it could be useful to us also, 
notice that in the CVS there is now a modified include/rtai_scb.h that 
could ease you communicating between an RTAI task and a kernel threads 
(signle reader/writer), without doing anything else but calling the 
inlines there found. If it is for you try it and feed back.
