configUSE_APPLICATION_TASK_TAG must be defined as 1 for this function to be available.
See the configuration section for more information.
Returns the ‘tag’ value associated with a task. The meaning and use of the tag
value is defined by the application writer. The RTOS kernel itself will not normally
access the tag value.
This function is intended for advanced users only.
