Afaik, when you use the posix skin you may use the same UDP code in Xenomai as in regular Posix/Linux as long as you compile your program with the right flags. If your network destination/source is a RTNet address it will call the rt functions and if its an address belonging to the regular network it will call the regular linux code.
