Title: Synchronization

Description:

A simple application that demonstates basic sanity of the kernel.
Two threads (A and B) take turns printing a greeting message to the console,
and use sleep requests and semaphores to control the rate at which messages
are generated. This demonstrates that kernel scheduling, communication,
and timing are operating correctly.

                        # but keep existing configuration info
or
    make pristine       # discard results of previous builds
                        # and restore pre-defined configuration info
