Description

While searching for an example use of rt_priority in BoardReader processes, I noticed that the BinaryMPIOutput_module also supports this configuration parameter.

I suspect that this is a copy/paste error, and this parameter should be removed from BinaryMPIOutput_module.

This parameter is used to enable realtime priority for BoardReader processes so that they can read out data as fast as possible (with no chance of being interrupted). I don't believe that this functionality is needed for EventBuilder processes (which would be the primary users of BinaryMPIOutput_module). And, even if they did, I think that we would choose to put the processing of that parameter in EventBuilderCore rather than the output module.

So, I believe that this should be removed.
