7.3 How long are interrupts disabled in an ISR?

Depending on the processor being used, interrupts  may be disabled for a few instructions when the interrupt is first recognized. Then by the Immediate Interrupt Handler when it schedules its associated Deferred Interrupt Handler. Otherwise, interrupts remain enabled in order to provide a high degree of responsiveness. However, if the user needs to disable interrupts, that is permitted.
