* In mbed OS, the idea is to post all callbacks through minar scheduler. However, the radio notifications
* are handled in IRQs with very high priority. Trying to post a minar callback directly in
* processRadioNotification() will result in a hard-fault. This is because minar asumes that all callbacks
* are posted from low priority context, so when minar schedules the callback it attempts to enter a
* critical section and disable all interrupts. The problem is that minar tries to do this by invoking the
* SoftDevice with a call to sd_nvic_critical_region_enter() while already running in high priority. This
* results in the SoftDevice generating a hard-fault.
* A solution is to reduce the priority from which the callback is posted to minar. Unfortunately, there
* are not clean ways to do this. The solution implemented uses a Timeout to call
* postRadioNotificationCallback() after a very short delay (1 us) and post the minar callback there.
* !!!WARNING!!! Radio notifications are very time critical events. The current solution is expected to
* work under the assumption that postRadioNotificationCalback() will be executed BEFORE the next radio
* notification event is generated.
