of their counters in a buffer if you access teh high byte first. This
way, as long as you read the high byte first and then the low byte, you
are sure of getting the value of the counter when you initiated the

Also there MPU/MCUs don't allow you to preempt and interrupt with
another unless you explicitly clear the interrupt mask. The interrupt
mask is set when you enter the interrupt.
