yes - but if you want that the original context get executed after the
other context has finished its execution you can also pass the original
one as link parameter to the ctor of boost::context.

with jump_to() you can yield and resume a context
a linked context gets executed after the context to which it is linked
ahs finished

no - because it must not be necessarily the original context which will
be executed next (could be an arbitrary context)

ctx1 -> ctx2 -> ctx3
