Does anyone out there feel the need to post/retrieve multiple items from a queue in one call?
If you get items one by one, a lot of overhead is generated. It would be much more efficient to call the memcpy in prvCopyQueueData() only once.
For the receiving case I would like to propose a function which blocks the calling task until the number of requested items are received, or exits after the specified number of timeout ticks.
If a timeout occurs, the function can either return nothing or the items which have been retrieved.
