In reply to: Mask bits in pointers
Parent article: Deferrable timers
Why not keep a single, system-wide pointer to the next non-deferable timer? This would have to be maintained each time such a timer fires but the cost might be comparable to all the masking and the resulting code might be easier to understand and maintain.
