Hi list,

the patch below adds some #ifdef's which I added in order to use the 
master stack with DROPS/TUDOS [1].

DROPS stands for Dresden Realtime OPerating System. It is a 
microkernel-based OS and thus runs
the complete EtherCAT stack, the network driver and the application in 
unprivileged user mode.
This brings some great advantages with respect to robustness and 

The patch is only needed due to the fact, that there are no character 
devices under DROPS.

Best regards,
