Dear Sir,

I have tested RTEMS POSIX pthread application and Network stack using
hardware floating point on Sparc v8 architecture.

As I know, whenever pthread is created, pthread task is operated with
context switching for hardware floating registers.
But, RTEMS native tasks for BSD network stack are created with

Is there any side-effect in this case because there is not context
switching operation for hardware floatingpoint registers on RTEMS native
network tasks ?

Please advise me.

Best Regards.
