This cannot be done by the linker since the loop to call the handlers is inlined due to performance reasons. I would like to add some sort of a callback mechanism which is invoked in rtems_interrupt_handler_install() and rtems_interrupt_handler_remove() operations (similar to the user extensions). There are some options to do this.

 4. Update or add a new API call to return the currently installed
    handler. This way interrupts can be chained.

Does 1. allow runtime installing and then tracing of an interrupt? I know 3. would.
