vPortEndScheduler() and the Cortex-M3

Posted by davidm on October 13, 2009
How does one get vPortEndScheduler() to operate in a Cortex-M3 port?

The rational for requiring this stems from the desire to have a system self power itself off once a processing session has concluded. The elegant point at which to do this surely must be when all the tasks have closed off their activity and vTaskDelete()ed their selves.

That is all the tasks except the task that issues the shutdown signal. It must wait for all the others to quit and then call vPortEndScheduler().

To answer my own question - use setjump() and longjump() as exampled in the PC's port.c.
