I'm not sure what you mean by real-time event model, but most likely,
no it is not..  It requires a process/thread to be waiting in kevent,
and there are no guarantees about the time from when the event that
triggers the wakeup and the time that your thread will run..  With some
combination of rtprio, the thread priority can be raised...  There is
no other method to get notification of kqueue waking up, than kevent..
