source: trunk/kernel/libk/remote_condvar.h @ 635

Last change on this file since 635 was 635, checked in by alain, 17 months ago

This version is a major evolution: The physical memory allocators,
defined in the kmem.c, ppm.c, and kcm.c files have been modified
to support remote accesses. The RPCs that were previously user
to allocate physical memory in a remote cluster have been removed.
This has been done to cure a dead-lock in case of concurrent page-faults.

This version 2.2 has been tested on a (4 clusters / 2 cores per cluster)
TSAR architecture, for both the "sort" and the "fft" applications.

32/*******************************************************************************************
33 * This file defines the ALMOS-MKH implentation of an user level, POSIX compliant condvar.
34 *
35 * It can be used by muti-threaded user applications to synchronise user threads
36 * running in different clusters.
37 *
38 * A condvar is declared by a given user process as a "pthread_cond_t" global variable.
39 * This user type is implemented as an unsigned long, but the value is not used by the
40 * kernel. ALMOS-MKH uses only the mutex virtual address as an identifier.
41 * For each user condvar, ALMOS-MKH creates a kernel "remote_condvar_t" structure,
42 * dynamically allocated in the reference cluster by the remote_condvar_create() function,
43 * and destroyed by the remote_condvar_destroy() function, using RPC if the calling thread
44 * is not running in the reference cluster.
45 *
46 * The blocking "remote_condvar_wait() function allows the calling thread to efficiently
47 * wait for a change in a shared user object. The calling thread blocks and register in
48 * a waiting queue attached to the condvar. The blocked thread is unblocked by another
49 * thread calling the remote_convar signal() or remote_condvar_broadcast().
50 * The three associated methods wait(), signal() and broadcast() must be called
51 * by a thread holding the mutex associated to the condvar.
