Blocking on multiple objects

I would like to use several communication mechanism (notification + queues + stream buffer) by one task.
But I cannot beacause I don’t see a mechnism that I can block particular task on several objects (e.g. notification + queue). I know that there is queue set API but it supports only queues +semaphores what about notifications, events or stream buffer.
Each of my tasks in the system has own queue and I cannot use any other nice communication mechanism becasue I’m not able to block on both. Do I miss something?

No, you don’t miss anything, but you could use a queue to tell the
waiting task what to check for. For example, if you send a notification
to a task, but the task is waiting on the ‘master’ queue, then also send
a message to the queue telling the receiving task to check its notification.

However, it sounds like you may be able to simplify your design and
perhaps use the queue for most things. Read through the ‘alternatives
to using queue sets’ section on the queue set page:
