[avr-gcc-list] Re: [avr-chat] task/thread stack usage

My rtos, AvrX, does the same thing with a separate stack for
interrupts.  Switching stacks slows down processing a tad, but saves a
lot of SRAM.  It is not necessary to patch the kernel: I used the
"naked" attribute which had the problem of not setting up a local
frame properly (usually not a problem).  IIRC, the "noreturn"
attribute works now with only two bytes of wasted stack storing the
previous frame pointer, or something like that.

So in case if interrupts are not nested, each task must accomodate
interrupt stack? In my own micro-kernel I have optimized that case in
a way
that interrupts have their own stack. Therefore task stack size is not
related to interrupts. In this way I save (n-1)*max_irq_stack bytes of
Where n is total number of tasks.

Drawback is that you need to patch your gcc with my __attribute__
patch to be able to write proper interrupt handlers.
