I honestly don't remember beyond 0 never being used for any field
related to an object id. And 1 always being a thread object. Ensuring
that 0 is not used would be my guess.
We have never made any guarantees about the ID values not changing
over time. If we want to eliminate the gaps we can. That would save some
And I have no idea where POSIX Interrupts came from. It doesn't
sound like anything that I have ever heard of.
