Interrupt on/off control

Postby dbwalker » Fri Oct 05, 2012 5:49 pm

What was the reasoning behind disabling interrupts when searching for the next task to run? I understand that you may want to change the state of a task in an ISR, but by disabling interrupts, you always defer it until the end. It would seem to me that leaving the interrupts disabled would possibly cause a task to be marked running a little bit sooner, but wouldn't cause any other bad side effects.

Yes, you are right. There are no good reason to disable interrupts there. I will remove it.
