Interrupts handling while threads or fork(0 is running


Hi all

what happens when an interrupt request appears while
a thread or FORK(0) is executed ?

Thanks

I don't think that you explained yourself.
The answer to your question as I get it is: context get saved, interrupt is served, context get back. Why it should behave in a different way ?
