   -- Task_Stage Related routines --

   procedure Make_Independent;
   --  Move the current task to the outermost level (level 1) of the master
   --  master hierarchy of the environment task. This is one level further
   --  out than normal tasks defined in library-level packages (level 2).
   --  The environment task will wait for level 2 tasks to terminate normally,
   --  then it will abort all the level 1 tasks. See Finalize_Global_Tasks
   --  procedure for more information.
   --  This is a dangerous operation, and should only be used on nested tasks
   --  or tasks that depend on any objects that might be finalized earlier than
   --  the termination of the environment task. It is for internal use by
   --  GNARL, to prevent such internal server tasks from preventing a
   --  partition from terminating.

   Independent_Task_Count : Natural := 0;
   --  Number of independent task. This counter is incremented each time
   --  Make_Independent is called. Note that if a server task terminates,
   --  this counter will not be decremented. Since Make_Independent locks
   --  the environment task (because every independent task depends on it),
   --  this counter is protected by the environment task's lock.

   -- Task Abortion related routines --

   procedure Cancel_Queued_Entry_Calls (T : Task_ID);
   --  Cancel any entry calls queued on target task.
   --  Do not call this while holding any locks.

   procedure Exit_One_ATC_Level (Self_ID : Task_ID);
   pragma Inline (Exit_One_ATC_Level);
   --  Call only with abort deferred and holding lock of Self_ID.
   --  This is a bit of common code for all entry calls.
   --  The effect is to exit one level of ATC nesting.

   procedure Abort_One_Task
     (Self_ID : Task_ID;
      T       : Task_ID);
   --  Similar to Locked_Abort_To_Level (Self_ID, T, 0), but:
   --    (1) caller should be holding no locks
   --    (2) may be called for tasks that have not yet been activated
   --    (3) always aborts whole task

   procedure Abort_Tasks (Tasks : Task_List);
   --  Abort_Tasks is called to initiate abortion, however, the actual
   --  abortion is done by abortee by means of Abort_Handler

   procedure Make_Passive
     (Self_ID : Task_ID;
      Task_Completed : Boolean);
   --  Update counts to indicate current task is either terminated
   --  or accepting on a terminate alternative. Call holding no locks.
