Why? Just start single dedicated thread that waits for any of events
from your timers, then invokes handler depending on particular
event. You get 32 different events/handlers easily.

Anyway, I meant that RTEMS doesn't actually restrict you in this regard,
and while it doesn't provide ready to use solution for this particular
application, it provides enough to achieve the goal.
