I've been developing a multitasking operating system for a 16 bit motorola processor, everything so far is going well, the software task switching works and is stable. Now I'm looking for a way to get information from an interrupt to running processes. I need to do the least amount of work in the interrupt itself, just unload the data somewhere. I was thinking about passing messages off to a circular buffer in the kernel and allowing the kernel to process the messages and pass them off to processes when it gets cpu time. I want messages to have a priority aswell, what would the fastest way to go about this? just use a circular buffer for each priority level and empty them out based on priority?
