28//        Generic Thread Context API definition (implementation in hal_context.c)
29//
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
32// void* pointers stored in the thread descriptor.
33// - the "hal_context_t" structure is used to store the CPU registers values that
34//   have not been saved in the kernel stack by the interrupt handler.
35// - the "hal_fpu_context_t" structure is used to save the FPU registers when required.
