Define name issue: portNVIC_SYSPRI2_REG in ARM_CM4F port

Posted by mr68360 on November 5, 2015

The ARM documentation lists three System Handler Priority Registers: SHPR1, SHPR2, SHPR3. SHPR3, the register controlling SysTick and PendSV, is at address 0xe000ed20.

Address 0xe000ed20, however, is defined in FreeRTOS 8.2.3 as portNVICSYSPRI2REG. Is the intent of the #define to reflect the register's ordinality (SYSPRI3 ??). If so, it would be more accurate to call this macro portNVICSYSPRI3REG.

Code maintainers please note.

I've just been looking at this.

As you say there are three such registers, and they appear in order at addresses 0xe000ed18, 0xe000ed1c and 0xe000ed20.

The lines...


...are, as you say writing to 0xe000ed20. If 0xe000ed18 is syspri 0, 0xe000ed1c is syspri 1, then 0xe000ed20 would be syspri 2.

I cannot see the name SHPR3 being used in the Cortex-M technical reference manual. Where does that register name come from?
