--  This package encapsulates and centralizes information about all
--  uses of interrupts (or signals), including the target-dependent
--  mapping of interrupts (or signals) to exceptions.

--  Unlike the original design, System.Interrupt_Management can only
--  be used for tasking systems.

--  PLEASE DO NOT remove the Elaborate_Body pragma from this package.
--  Elaboration of this package should happen early, as most other
--  initializations depend on it. Forcing immediate elaboration of
--  the body also helps to enforce the design assumption that this
--  is a second-level package, just one level above System.OS_Interface
--  with no cross-dependencies.

--  PLEASE DO NOT put any subprogram declarations with arguments of
--  type Interrupt_ID into the visible part of this package. The type
--  Interrupt_ID is used to derive the type in Ada.Interrupts, and
--  adding more operations to that type would be illegal according
--  to the Ada Reference Manual. This is the reason why the signals
--  sets are implemeneted using visible arrays rather than functions.

package System.Interrupt_Management is

   pragma Elaborate_Body;

   type Interrupt_Mask is limited private;

   type Interrupt_ID is new Interfaces.C.int
     range 0 .. System.OS_Interface.Max_Interrupt;

   type Interrupt_Set is array (Interrupt_ID) of Boolean;

   --  The following objects serve as constants, but are initialized
   --  in the body to aid portability.  This permits us to use more
   --  portable names for interrupts, where distinct names may map to
   --  the same interrupt ID value.
   --  For example, suppose SIGRARE is a signal that is not defined on
   --  all systems, but is always reserved when it is defined. If we
   --  have the convention that ID zero is not used for any "real"
   --  signals, and SIGRARE = 0 when SIGRARE is not one of the locally
   --  supported signals, we can write
   --     Reserved (SIGRARE) := true;
   --  and the initialization code will be portable.

   Abort_Task_Interrupt : Interrupt_ID;
   --  The interrupt that is used to implement task abortion if
   --  an interrupt is used for that purpose. This is one of the
   --  reserved interrupts.

   Keep_Unmasked : Interrupt_Set := (others => False);
   --  Keep_Unmasked (I) is true iff the interrupt I is one that must
   --  that must be kept unmasked at all times, except (perhaps) for
   --  short critical sections. This includes interrupts that are
   --  mapped to exceptions (see System.Interrupt_Exceptions.Is_Exception),
   --  but may also include interrupts (e.g. timer) that need to be kept
   --  unmasked for other reasons. Where interrupts are implemented as
   --  OS signals, and signal masking is per-task, the interrupt should
   --  be unmasked in ALL TASKS.

   Reserve : Interrupt_Set := (others => False);
   --  Reserve (I) is true iff the interrupt I is one that cannot be
   --  permitted to be attached to a user handler. The possible reasons
   --  are many. For example, it may be mapped to an exception used to
   --  implement task abortion, or used to implement time delays.

   procedure Initialize_Interrupts;
   --  On systems where there is no signal inheritance between tasks (e.g
   --  VxWorks, GNU/LinuxThreads), this procedure is used to initialize
   --  interrupts handling in each task. Otherwise this function should
   --  only be called by initialize in this package body.

   type Interrupt_Mask is new System.OS_Interface.sigset_t;
   --  In some implementation Interrupt_Mask can be represented
   --  as a linked list.
