how to support interrupt nested in cpu without NVIC

Posted by zhuchunxia on June 21, 2016

Hi: in my port source file. my interrupt porting code like this define portDISABLEINTERRUPTS() vPortDisableInterrupt() define portENABLEINTERRUPTS() vPortEnableInterrupt() define portSETINTERRUPTMASKFROMISR() GetLocalPSR() define portCLEARINTERRUPTMASKFROMISR(x) SetLocalPSR(x)

GetLocalPSR() will return current interrupt enable flag and disable interrupt SetLocalPSR(x) will store interrupt enable flag by x.

it seems to not support interrupt nested as portSETINTERRUPTMASKFROMISR() disable all interrupt.

should I set mask to those interrupts which is lower than current interrrupt priority to allow higher priority interrupt happen ?

If you are implementing a full interrupt nesting scheme then both taskENTERCRITICAL() and taskENTERCRITICALFROMISR() [also called portSETINTERRUPTMASKFROMISR()] should disable interrupts up to a user defined maximum interrupt priority. The interrupts that have a priority above that maximum will never be disabled by the RTOS, but cannot use the FreeRTOS API.

If you are in a critical section then you don't want interrupts below the user defined maximum to be able to execute - this is not related to interrupt nesting as such as interrupts at or below the above mentioned user defined maximum priority can only nest when you are outside of a critical section (which is the point of entering the critical section).

the user defined maximum interrupt priority you mentioned is configMAXSYSCALLINTERRUPT_PRIORITY ? I know the value is used to set interrupt priority register instead of RTOS kernel . my cpu has no interrupt priority register to rearrange all interrupt prority.
