[En-Nut-Discussion] Asynchronous signals - waking up blocked threads

I am in need for a mechanism to inform blocked threads about changes to 
configuration data. One example is the configuration change of the port 
number of a Telnet server. In the case of a port number change, the 
server has to shut-down and restarted to listen on the new TCP port.

In the POSIX world one can use a signal to unblock a process from 
blocking functions like accept, read or sleep.

Is there anything similar available in Nut/OS? If not would this be a 
desirable feature and how could it be implemented?
