No problem.  It will work fine.  Depending upon the processing
you are doing, you could probably do it with an 8xx.

Without any more knowledge of your protocol details, you'll
probably want to design the software to reduce the amount of
interrupts.  There are buffer management concerns, such as
alignment and location, but all of this depends on all of your
system requirements outside of this processing.  Where is
the RTP processing being done, on the 8xxx or the external device?

All of this is well within the capabilities of the processor and Linux.
