    SubjectRe: wake_up from interrupt handler
    In this code too.. lost-wakeup problem is not solved

    if (event_occured)
    else
    schedule();

    what if in check ' if(event_occured) ' goes to 'else'
    and before calling schedule() my ISR interrupted this
    thread and set the event..

    Also Mike told to disable the interrupt before
    checking for event... So When to enable interrupts
    then ??
