WAIT_EVENT_INTERRUPT(9) Driver Basics WAIT_EVENT_INTERRUPT(9)NAME
wait_event_interruptible_lock_irq - sleep until a condition gets true. The condition is checked under the lock. This is expected to be
called with the lock taken.
wait_event_interruptible_lock_irq(wq, condition, lock);
the waitqueue to wait on
a C expression for the event to wait for
a locked spinlock_t, which will be released before schedule and reacquired afterwards.
The process is put to sleep (TASK_INTERRUPTIBLE) until the condition evaluates to true or signal is received. The condition is checked each
time the waitqueue wq is woken up.
wake_up has to be called after changing any variable that could change the result of the wait condition.
This is supposed to be called while holding the lock. The lock is dropped before going to sleep and is reacquired afterwards.
The macro will return -ERESTARTSYS if it was interrupted by a signal and 0 if condition evaluated to true.

sem_wait(2) System Calls Manual sem_wait(2)NAME
sem_wait, sem_trywait - lock a POSIX semaphore
is used to lock a semaphore. The calling thread will not return from its call to until one of the following events occur: it successfully
obtains a lock on the semaphore; it is interrupted by a signal or an error condition occurs.
is used to lock a semaphore, if it is available. The value of the semaphore sem is checked at some unspecified time during the call. If
the semaphore is available at the time its value is checked, the calling thread will atomically, with respect to the checking of the value,
lock the semaphore. The thread will now own a lock on the semaphore; the call will return successfully. If the semaphore is unavailable
at the time its value is checked, then the call returns -1 with errno set to EAGAIN.
If the specified semaphore referred to by sem is a named semaphore, then this semaphore must have been opened by the calling process with
The calling process must have both read and write permissions on the semaphore to perform these operations. The semaphore will be locked
upon successful return and will stay locked until it is explicitly released by a call to
To use this function, link in the realtime library by specifying on the compiler or linker command line.
The following call to will lock the semaphore sem.
The following call to will lock the semaphore sem, if it is available.
A successful call to will return 0 and the calling thread will then own a lock on the semaphore. Otherwise, the call to will return -1
with errno set to the appropriate value of the error condition.
A successful call to will return 0, if the semaphore was available and the calling thread was able to lock the semaphore. Otherwise, the
call to will return -1 with errno set to the appropriate value of the error condition.
and fail and do not perform the requested operation if any of the following conditions are encountered:
[EPERM] The calling process does not have the privileges necessary to lock the semaphore.
[EAGAIN] The semaphore was not available and hence could not be locked by This error condition only occurs in
[EINVAL] The argument sem does not refer to a valid semaphore.
[EINTR] The function was interrupted by a signal
