CONFIG_NUM_PREEMPT_PRIORITIES

Number of preemptible priorities

Type: int

Help

Number of preemptible priorities available in the system. Gives access
to priorities 0 to CONFIG_NUM_PREEMPT_PRIORITIES - 1.

This can be set to 0 to disable preemptible scheduling.

The total number of priorities is

 NUM_COOP_PRIORITIES + NUM_PREEMPT_PRIORITIES + 1

The extra one is for the idle thread, which must run at the lowest
priority, and be the only thread at that priority.
