28//        Generic Thread Context API definition (implementation in hal_context.c)
29//
[151]30// A thread context is defined by the two (core specific) structures hal_cpu_context_t
31// and hal_fpu_context_t, defined in hal_context.c file, that are accessed with generic
[1]32// void* pointers stored in the thread descriptor.
[337]33// - the "hal_context_t" struct is used for the CPU registers values at context switch.
34// - the "hal_fpu_context_t" struct is used for the FPU registers when required.
