Thank you for the explanation. I was reviewing the patch and not the patch and
the results of it being applied.

 Well,
https://docs.rtems.org/branches/master/c-user/configuring_a_system.html#configure-idle-task-body
hasn't
seemed to change, so maybe that is just the point to make in the commit.
When we touch things that manipulate configuration, it is important to
understand whether or not it impacts the API. Sometimes that is hard for us
to tell in patch review just by looking quickly.

In the broader sense, the method used to initialize the idle task should be
explained at
https://docs.rtems.org/branches/master/c-user/initialization.html#the-idle-task

May be I am missing something simple here. How would I provide an
custom
IDLE task? Is it by providing something like ...

#include 

const Thread_Idle_body _Thread_Idle_body = My_Idle_body;


I think you do it by a configure macro that confdefs picks up by this 
line added:

+const Thread_Idle_body _Thread_Idle_body = CONFIGURE_IDLE_TASK_BODY;

It needs some doco ;)


Sorry, my problem is that I am so familiar with this stuff that I don't 
need documentation. What do you want to have documented and were should 
it be placed?


When I see a variable/function definition and want to see the Doxygen I 
just hit an editor key and get it. I don't want to duplicate 
documentation at the variable/function definition level.

No, definitely not. An application designer should use the documented API:

https://docs.rtems.org/branches/master/c-user/configuring_a_system.html#configure-idle-task-body

The goal of this and follow up change sets is to split this 3k LOC file 
(confdefs.h) in easier to review pieces.


The file contains also comments which should be in the Classic API 
Guide, e.g. how to configure the filesystems:


https://docs.rtems.org/branches/master/c-user/configuring_a_system.html#file-system-configuration-parameters

This is just an enumeration of the options. The user has no idea how 
things are related after reading this section.

Provide a default definition of the idle thread body constant.

[PATCH 13/18] config: Add _Thread_Idle_body

2020-02-14 Thread Sebastian Huber
Move the idle thread body configuration constant out of the
configuration table.

Provide a default definition of the idle thread body constant.

Update #3875.
