But I had a different application in mind: notify a producer if you took the
last one from the chain.
So the empty check would be after the last one was taken.

With chain_get there is the question of what is returned.

Because  of this it might even make sense to have the 

rtems_chain_append_with_notification( chain, node, tid, event) 

and

rtems_chain_get_with_notification (chain, tid, event)  -> node

functions instead.  These were the functions Joel suggested to me in IRC. 
Their disadvantage are of course that in theory they are less flexible.  But in
practice they encapsulate a very common use case.
