Expand description

This crate offers routines for spawning new tasks and convenient builder patterns for customizing new tasks.

The two functions of interest to create a TaskBuilder are:

Structs

A wrapper around a TaskRef for bootstrapped tasks, which are the tasks that represent the first thread of execution on each CPU when it first boots.
A struct that offers a builder pattern to create and customize new Tasks.

Functions

Spawns a dedicated task to cleanup all bootstrap tasks by reaping them, i.e., taking their exit value.
Spawns an idle task on the current CPU and adds it to this CPU’s runqueue.
Initializes tasking for the given AP core, including creating a runqueue for it and creating its initial task bootstrapped from the current execution context for that core.
Creates a builder for a new application Task.
Creates a builder for a new Task that starts at the given entry point function func and will be passed the given argument.
