** File:		pralarm.h
** Description:	API to periodic alarms.
**
**
** Alarms are defined to invoke some client specified function at 
** a time in the future. The notification may be a one time event
** or repeated at a fixed interval. The interval at which the next
** notification takes place may be modified by the client code only
** during the respective notification.
**
** The notification is delivered on a thread that is part of the
** alarm context (PRAlarm). The thread will inherit the priority
** of the Alarm creator.
**
** Any number of periodic alarms (PRAlarmID) may be created within
** the context of a single alarm (PRAlarm). The notifications will be
** scheduled as close to the desired time as possible.
**
** Repeating periodic notifies are expected to run at a fixed rate.
** That rate is expressed as some number of notifies per period where
** the period is much larger than a PRIntervalTime (see prinrval.h).

** DESCRIPTION:
**  Create an alarm context.
** INPUTS:      void
** OUTPUTS:     None
** RETURN:      PRAlarm*
**  
** SIDE EFFECTS:
**  This creates an alarm context, which is an object used for subsequent
**  notification creations. It also creates a thread that will be used to
** deliver the notifications that are expected to be defined. The client
** is resposible for destroying the context when appropriate.
** RESTRICTIONS:
**  None.

** ALGORITHM:   N/A

**  
** SIDE EFFECTS:
**  This destroys the context that was created by PR_CreateAlarm().

/***********************************************************************
** FUNCTION:    PR_SetAlarm
** DESCRIPTION:
**  Creates a periodic notifier that is to be delivered to a specified
**  function at some fixed interval.
** INPUTS:      PRAlarm *alarm              Parent alarm context
**              PRIntervalTime period       Interval over which the notifies
**                                          are delivered.
**              PRUint32 rate               The rate within the interval that
**                                          the notifies will be delivered.
**              PRPeriodicAlarmFn function  Entry point where the notifies
**                                          will be delivered.
** OUTPUTS:     None
** RETURN:      PRAlarmID*                  Handle to the notifier just created
**                                          or NULL if the request failed.
**  
** SIDE EFFECTS:
**  A periodic notifier is created. The notifications will be delivered
**  by the alarm's internal thread at a fixed interval whose rate is the
**  number of interrupts per interval specified. The first notification
**  will be delivered as soon as possible, and they will continue until
**  the notifier routine indicates that they should cease of the alarm
**  context is destroyed (PR_DestroyAlarm).
** RESTRICTIONS:
**  None. 
** MEMORY:      Memory for the notifier object.
** ALGORITHM:   The rate at which notifications are delivered are stated
**              to be "'rate' notifies per 'interval'". The exact time of
**              the notification is computed based on a epoch established
**              when the notifier was set. Each notification is delivered
**              not ealier than the epoch plus the fixed rate times the
**              notification sequence number. Such notifications have the
**              potential to be late by not more than 'interval'/'rate'.
**              The amount of lateness of one notification is taken into
**              account on the next in an attempt to avoid long term slew.

** FUNCTION:    PR_ResetAlarm
** DESCRIPTION:
**  Resets an existing alarm.
** INPUTS:      PRAlarmID *id               Identify of the notifier.
**              PRIntervalTime period       Interval over which the notifies

** SIDE EFFECTS:
**  An existing alarm may have its period and rate redefined. The
**  additional side effect is that the notifier's epoch is recomputed.
**  The first notification delivered by the newly refreshed alarm is
**  defined to be 'interval'/'rate' from the time of the reset.
** RESTRICTIONS:
**  This function may only be called in the notifier for that alarm.
