get_ms_count() example

Kernel implements one function named get_ms_count() to read the current RTOS kernel millisecond tick count. The below code snippet demonstrates use of the get_ms_count() function to calculate the elapsed time:

void send_data()
    // 64-bit time doesn't wrap for half a billion years, at least
    uint64_t now = Kernel::get_ms_count();
    //do some operations
    // ...

    uint64_t later = Kernel::get_ms_count();

    //calculate millisecs elapsed
    uint64_t elapsed_ms = later - now;
