These two patches are an initial add for Xenomai in buildroot.

"Xenomai is a real-time development framework cooperating with the
Linux kernel, in order to provide a pervasive, interface-agnostic,
hard real-time support to user-space applications, seamlessly
integrated into the GNU/Linux environment."

Xenomai comes with a Linux Kernel and user-space part.
I added a Linux extensions sub-menu (The first patch) which handles
the kernel modification provided by Adeos/Xenomai. The advantage of
this way is for maintenance purpose. (Xenomai do not provide a full
kernel patch, but use a script called "prepare-kernel.sh")
Also, this split the user-space from the kernel in a nice way instead
of adding a serie of patches.

The Xenomai user-space part can be built separately with an external
real-time Kernel.

v1: original patch by Benoît Mauduit
v2: slight modifications, mainly to support other architectures and SMP.
