Programming the I/O pins is fairly easy, just look at the Dragonball
user's manual. You can even access these from an application program,
though that's not recommended. Please note, however, you don't have
access to some of the I/O pins of the Dragonball on the uCsimm

Real time extensions are useful if you need to respond to an event
within a specific time period (like say 5ms). Under most
circumstances, regular uclinux won't be missing interrupts, but it may
not get to them as fast as you'd like. You'll need to specify the
requirements more precisely.
