 +===== Kernel Mode =====
 +Kernel mode is the most privileged level of execution supported by the processor.    [[procedures:interrupt_procedure|Interrupt]]s and the [[instructions:ker|Kernel Call]] instruction cause the processor to enter [[procedures:kernel_entry_state|kernel]] mode.    The kernel
 +handles the interrupt and if the interrupt requires further processing by the MCP, queues the interrupt to a privileged [[mcp|MCP]] task known as
 +an [[mcp:independent_runner|independent runner]] and, if the now runnable IR is the highest priority runnable task, the kernel
 +will dispatch it with a [[instructions:brv|BRV]] instruction.
