Are you sure this is good interface?

"Tell me if another function works this or that way".

That's certainly not traditional interface, and it seems dangerous to
me. Callbacks now have different semantic requirements based on value
of some flag...

Would it be possible to have two sets of callbacks, one irq safe and
one not?
