I suspect the problem is with kapidata.h. If the C++ class is extended
then the equivalent C data structure needs to be extended in the same
way, or the C++ kernel implementation will attempt to use more space
than is provided by the application in a cyg_thread data structure.

Incidentally, at a guess member variables like iPeriod and iQos belong
in a Cyg_SchedThread base class appropriate to the type of scheduler
you are working on. They are not generic fields applicable to all
