Once I tried to get them to implement an ecrt_domain_received function so
the turn around time of packets can be actually measured. Someone actually
did that and I extensively tested it. The patch was very simple.

Now get this WTF: the ethercat master developers said you don't need to
know when a packet arrives. A true WTF that one!

I still have the patch although it needs a bit of adaptation, in case they
come to their senses. Perhaps if others also mention it would be useful
they would accept that function.
