this suggests to me that the "filter" callback should really be in 3

 - one invoked when a process first asks for the event (invoked in
	that process).
 - one invoked when the event happens (which could be in any context
	-- interrupt level, process context of some other process, ...)
 - one invoked when the event actually gets posted to the process
	(again invoked in that process)
