NAME

thread_exit – abandon current thread context

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/proc.h>

void
thread_exit(void);

DESCRIPTION

The thread_exit() function implements the machine independent prelude to a thread shutdown. It will not return, and will result in a call to mi_switch(9) to schedule some other thread.

thread_exit() arranges to free all the resources of the thread, specifically the kernel stack.

To protect the runqueue(9), thread_exit() must be called with the sched_lock mutex held.

SEE ALSO

mi_switch(9), mutex(9), runqueue(9), sleep(9)

What is this horrible fascination with Unix? The operating system of the 1960s, still gaining in popularity in the 1990s.
