Building the userland stuff may also be quite ardous.
Thank you for all your answers.As Robert Berger wrote, Xenomai is a patch that you need to apply to the kernel and then compile it. I haven't done it yet, but I think there might be some difficulty if patching an already patched kernel. Is this the case in the Yocto distributions?

I want hard real-time. Really, it might be enough with soft real-time, but I don't want to take the risk. The real-time system has a 1ms period.

Wolfgang, do you plan to support x86 architecture?
I'll ask Denx, as well as Wind River and Enea about Xenomai and x86 support for their Linux distributions. If I get through something, I'll let you know.
