Short description: Interrupts were introduced as a way to reduce wasting the processor's valuable time in pooling loops, waiting for external events. Usually, they are implemented in hardware like interrupt controller circuit (connected between the interrupting device and the processor's interrupt pin to multiplexing several sources of interrupt onto the one or two CPU). In this exercise we will get an idea of how connect simple interrupt source with appropriate handler.
