WAIT_EVENT_LOCK_IRQ(9) Driver Basics WAIT_EVENT_LOCK_IRQ(9)NAME
wait_event_lock_irq - sleep until a condition gets true. The condition is checked under the lock. This is expected to be called with the
wait_event_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_UNINTERRUPTIBLE) until the condition evaluates to true. 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.

tis_read_trylock(3) Library Functions Manual tis_read_trylock(3)NAME
tis_read_trylock - Attempts to acquire a read-write lock for read access. Does not wait if the lock cannot be immediately granted.
Standard C Library (libc.so, libc.a)
Address of the read-write lock to be acquired.
This routine attempts to acquire a read-write lock for read access. If the lock cannot be granted, the routine returns without waiting.
When a thread calls this routine, an attempt is made to immediately acquire the lock for read access. If the lock is acquired, zero (0) is
returned. If a holder of the lock for write access exists, [EBUSY] is returned.
If the lock cannot be acquired for read access immediately, the calling program does not wait for the lock to be released.
If an error condition occurs, this routine returns an integer value indicating the type of error. Possible return values are as follows:
Successful completion; the lock was acquired. The lock is being held for write access. The lock for read access was not acquired.
