//!   used in a "receive" is pointed by index [(cur_first_msg + cur_num_msg-1)%max_num_msg]
//!   and the first free message ready to be used in a "send" operation is
//!   [cur_first_msg] if circular buffer is extended from front, 
//!   [(cur_first_msg + cur_num_msg)%max_num_msg] otherwise.
//!
//!   This transforms the index in a circular buffer with an embedded free
