configASSERT does not catch errCOULD_NOT_ALLOCATE_REQUIRED_MEMORY

Posted by beefc0de on May 9, 2016

Problem: If the Idle Task could not be created in vTaskStartScheduler we try to catch this with
configAssert( xReturn );. But we miss it if errCOULDNOTALLOCATEREQUIREDMEMORY is returned and configAssert only checks for 0, as in #define configASSERT( ( x ) ) if( ( x ) == 0 ) vAssertCalled( __FILE__, __LINE__ )

*Fix: * use configASSERT( bdFALSE);in case the Idle Task could not be created.

Thanks for pointing this out.

configASSERT( pdFALSE ) will generate compiler warnings about the expression always evaluating to true, so this has instead been changed to:

configASSERT( xReturn != errCOULDNOTALLOCATEREQUIREDMEMORY );
