The interrupt priority supplied in cyg_interrupt_create() is used for
- If chained interrupts are enabled, it specifies the relative
position in the chain that the interrupt will be serviced.
- If the interrupt controller implements interrupt prioritization, it
will be used to set the hardware priority of the interrupt source.
DSRs are not prioritized, so it will have no effect on when the DSR is
