Enable a hardware interrupt
#include <sys/neutrino.h> int InterruptUnmask( int intr, int id );
- The interrupt you want to unmask.
- The value returned by
or -1 if you don't want the kernel to track interrupt maskings
and unmaskings for each handler.
The id is ignored unless you use the _NTO_INTR_FLAGS_TRK_MSK flag when you attach the handler.
Use the -l c option to qcc to link against this library. This library is usually included automatically.
The InterruptUnmask() kernel call enables the hardware interrupt specified by intr for the interrupt handler specified by intr for the handler specified by id when the mask count reaches zero. You can call this function from a thread or from an interrupt handler. Before calling this function, the thread must request I/O privileges by calling:
ThreadCtl( _NTO_TCTL_IO, 0 );
If the thread doesn't do this, it might SIGSEGV when it calls InterruptUnmask().
Calls to InterruptMask() are nested; the interrupt isn't unmasked until InterruptUnmask() has been called once for every call to InterruptMask().
The current mask count, or -1 if an error occurs (errno is set).
- Not a supported hardware interrupt intr.
