!discussion

Also, at the workshop, it was noted that the above terms are not defined 
precisely enough. This came up in the discussion of running multiple active 
partitions in the same processing note, and the realization that the term 
"processor" as used (but not defined) in the LRM, really means 
"virtual-processor". The rules in the RT annex refer to the processor as a 
dedicated resource of teh active partition. It does not consider the acse 
when multiple APs run on the same processsor.

Note: I do not believe that this AI can be solved in the context of Ada 95. 
I am submitting it just for the purpose of recording the issue for future 
(more ambitious) revisions.
