The paper presents advanced task management techniques featuring Boolean vectors and parallel (bitwise) vector operations on kernel data structures. These techniques have been applied to three aspects of task management: task scheduling, task execution request generation and task synchronization. A major effect has been thus achieved since the execution time of system operations no longer depends on the number of tasks involved. Instead, multiple operations can be executed within a single step of constant and minimal duration which is bounded by the execution time of bitwise Boolean operation instructions. In particular, multiple tasks can be released simultaneously in constant time irrespective of the number of tasks involved (n), whereas in conventional kernels the complexity of that operation is O(n2). On the other hand, task scheduling time has also been reduced to a minimum, being of the same order as the execution time of register bit-manipulation instructions.
