I'm not conviienced that a significant part of the master code must be 
in the kernel space!
I did recently an integration of the openPowerlink stack and the 
userspace driver of Intel's i210 board as used within the DPDK project.
It is working in real-time under PREEMPT_RT LINUX after solving problems 
with the different buffer systems.

A similar solution should also be possible with EtherCAT ..
