I suppose in Windows we would use a message. In Linux I would prefer a 
semaphore or - supposedly best if really usable here - pthread.mutex as 
same uses FUTEX whenever the underlying arch allows for and thus the 
overhead is as small as possible, because there is no OS call necessary 
when scheduling an event and when an event is already scheduled at the 
time the previous is done.
