Actually, given the presence of sEDF and the arinc653 schedulers (both
of which have RT properties) and the simplicity of the ARM interrupt
injection path I think Xen on ARM is probably not in too bad a shape for
a soft-ish RT system, at least as a starting point for
testing/measuring/improving etc. It depends on the specific requirements
of course.

Also remember that through cpupools you can split the physical CPUs into
RT and non-RT pools, each with their own scheduler and assign domains to
the appropriate pool.
