Is the --jump address the one that i get if I do readelf -h <prog>, and
look at the Entry point address entry?

Yes, please. I would be very grateful. Thank you. (I have devboard 82)

OK, fair enough. What I am doing is developing a device driver which
needs about 100 us resolution. But the standard kernel has the
resolution of about 10 ms. So I am planing to develop one by using fast
timers. But all so I am thinking of using this project for my BS thesis
and because of that I will develop one more driver that will use the
RTAI kernel extensions (if I will ever get the RTAI patched kernel to
compile) and it would be very nice if I could develop one more that will
use eCos. So that I will be able to compere how they behave under heavy
