    Subjectget_current is __pure__, maybe __const__ even

    This looks fixable.

    At the very least, __attribute__((__pure__))
    will apply to your get_current function.

    I think __attribute__((__const__)) will too,
    even though it's technically against the
    documentation. While you do indeed read from
    memory, you don't read from memory that could
    be seen as changing. Nothing done during the
    lifetime of a task will change "current" as
    viewed from within that task.
