Hardware, Embedded Systems Having read the feedback resulting from my previous post on interrupts (itself resulting from an earlier OSnews Asks item on the subject), I've had a look at the way interrupts work on PowerPC v2.02, SPARC v9, Alpha and IA-64 (Itanium), and contribute this back to anyone who's interested (or willing to report any blatant flaw found in my posts). I've also tried to rework a bit my interrupt handling model to make it significantly clearer and have it look more like a design doc and less like a code draft.

I hope I'm not annoying you too much, that's not my intent.

If you can demonstrate that threads make your paradigm better, then go for it.

My main gripe is that, after all our talks, you still used blanket statements like the following:

"The former [threaded operation] is obviously significantly better for scalability..."
