Neither did I have a look into the code, but some general
remarks/comments from the RTEMS side:
- RTEMS has an xdr port of its own (Originally derived from Sun RPC's
original code, but heavily modified since).
- XDR in general has a lot of portability issues, esp. wrt. "exotic
targets". Have these exotic targets been taken into account?
- XDR is hardly useful for systems without networking support.
Has this consideration been taken into account (E.g. XDR not depending
on "networking routines".)
That said, I'd see your XDR works disabled for RTEMS at least for now
and/or to be optional (Preferably defaulting to off).
