Just like the last post I replied to, I'm afraid you are using third party code on an architecture we don't support ourselves - so I'm afraid I don't know where to start in replying. The only thing I could do is to obtain the board, tools and third party code myself and try it .... and that would take a long time.

I am very surprised an FREERTOS that the raspberry pi 3 is not really supported. There are ports but the all seem to be incomplete and are not stable.

I do not need to tell you the the RPi ha a huge number of users and the a RTOS would be a huge benefit to the RPi community.

Will the FREERTOS consider this?

It is something we consider quite often, but it is somewhat outside of our primary MCU market, and our roadmap going forward has a lot that will inevitable be higher priority.
