:Can you also add a flag and an INVARIANT check to ensure that timers
:are indeed correctly initialized? Most code does a bzero or uses default
:zeroing, so we should be able to catch those easily.
Yes, that's a good idea. I'll add a mandatory flag which callout_init()
always sets. but for now we will just printf() if a timer is found to
not have been properly initialized.
