[23]32 * This file defines a remote kernel lock, that supports several simultaneous read
[1]33 * accesses, but only one write access. It implements a ticket based allocation policy.
34 * It can be used to synchronize threads running in different clusters, because
35 * all access functions use remote pointers.
36 * - A reader take the lock to atomically increments the registered readers count.
37 *   Then it release the lock and access the protected structure. It atomically
38 *   decrements the readers count without taking the lock when access is completed.
39 * - A writer take the lock and keep it, but must wait completion of all current read
40 *   accesses before starting its own access.
41 * When the lock is taken by another thread, the new-comers use a busy waiting policy.
