Ok. I will add something to the task delete when I update the create
extension doco with the boolean return (PR228) unless we can resolve it.
Should task variables also have doco added ?

I do not think so. I need to see what was happening with this. The POSIX
task delete should check the class of the object before acting on it. I
do not think it does, but I am not sure.

Sure, but is the extact list and where user or driver extensions are
relative to RTEMS ones documented, eg ASR, newlib, classic API, POSIX,
ITRON, task variables, stack monitor, capture engine, etc ?

What about situations where a static extension is added by a user, or
created by a driver, or some other part of a BSP create, eg post driver
phase etc ?

It would seem the task variable extension is being added before the
newlib extension. I feel being able to access libc as Peter wishes is
something that should be supported.
