Data sharing bet RTAI and kthread

     If the socket implementation were to be done in a kernel thread, I 
have some doubts regarding data sharing between the RTAI module and the 
kernel thread. I guess we could use FIFOs, shm or the scb interface, based 
on the application's requirements. Am I correct? But, how about the calls 
to access these from the kthread? Will these be also through the user 
system calls, which will be wrapped in calls with a 'k' prefix, to take 
care of the memory spaces?

Guess these are all newbie questions.. 
Thanks a ton once again for your patience and help!
