All Salvo Cyclic Timer Services.

Description of Problem

Calling a cyclic timer service (e.g. OSResetCycTmr()) from within the associated cyclic timer leads to runtime crashes.

Suggested Workaround

Currently, cyclic timer services are not intended for use within the associated cyclic timer, but rather, they should be called from mainline / background code.

I.e. OSResetCycTmr(cyclicTimerN) must not be called from within cyclic Timer N's cyclic timer function. However, OSResetCycTmr(cyclicTimerM) can be called from within cyclic Timer N's cyclic timer function (where tcb M <> tcb N).

Fixed In

Not yet determined. A prevention check may be added to such services (to avoid the crashes), or these services may be expanded to allow this.
