depends on modecheck?

Seems like always depends on, as the following symbols would imply:

nm -D /home/lano/buildroot/host/x86_64-buildroot-linux-gnu/sysroot/usr/xenomai/lib/ | grep __real
                 U __real_free
                 U __real_malloc

xeno-config deals with this by always linking modeck, even if you add --no-mode-check-

I am not completely confident with the wrapper-magic,
but shouldn't libcopperplate use either cobalt_malloc or the libc malloc?
__real_malloc is just a stub for libc malloc, so I really don't get the point (assuming this is intentional).

Modeswitches could also be detected by interposing libraries, so removing libmodechk
Is a viable thing to do.
(shameless plug: )
