Re: [RFCv2 1/2] misc: Add timer API

Tomasz Bursztyka

Hi Benjamin,

2. I am not sure about the naming. This is yet another timer library,
when we already have nano timers and micro timers. What makes it special
is its callback functionality. Can we try to get that into the name ?
Sure we can add a timeout or callback to the name, but IMO this would
be much more useful than nano_timer thus why I would like to promote
it over it.
Since nobody is suggesting anything here are some alternatives:

sys_timer_callback*: quite long imo
sys_callback: doesn't say much
sys_timeout: I would favor this one
Me too.

I would prefer sys_callback I think: you add a callback with a timeout
shows that there is a timeout/timer IMHO.
A timeout says all without people to read parameters. At a timeout
usually, it means
you want to do something, thus the callback. It's not suprizing timeout
keyword is usually
preferred in some user-land libraries on Linux or else.
