LWP_CACHE_CREDS(9)					   BSD Kernel Developer's Manual					LWP_CACHE_CREDS(9)

LWP_CACHE_CREDS -- synchronize LWP credential with process credential SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/lwp.h> void LWP_CACHE_CREDS(lwp_t *l, struct proc *p); DESCRIPTION
LWP_CACHE_CREDS() updates the LWP's cached credential to match with the process' credential if the latter has been changed after the last synchronization. Each LWPs have its cached credential so that it can be used without worrying about potential of other LWP changing the process' credential. kauth_cred_get() returns the cached credential. LWP_CACHE_CREDS() is called by MD entry code for system call and various traps. LWPs which can live in kernel for long period should call LWP_CACHE_CREDS() by itsself to refresh its credential. LWP_CACHE_CREDS() takes the following arguments. l The calling lwp. p The process which the lwp l belongs to. LWP_CACHE_CREDS() might be implemented as a macro. SEE ALSO

_LWP_KILL(2)						      BSD System Calls Manual						      _LWP_KILL(2)

_lwp_kill -- send a signal to a light-weight process LIBRARY
Standard C Library (libc, -lc) SYNOPSIS
#include <lwp.h> int _lwp_kill(lwpid_t lwp, int sig); DESCRIPTION
_lwp_kill() sends the signal specified by sig to the light-weight process specified by lwp. If the sig argument is given as 0 (zero), _lwp_kill will test for the existence of the target LWP, but will take no further action. Job control signals and uncatchable signals can not be directed to a specific LWP: if posted with _lwp_kill, they will affect all LWPs in the process. Signals will be posted successfully to suspended LWPs, but will not be handled further until the LWP has been continued. RETURN VALUES
A 0 value indicates that the call succeeded. A -1 return value indicates an error occurred and errno is set to indicate the reason. ERRORS
[EINVAL] sig is not a valid signal number. [ESRCH] No LWP can be found in the current process corresponding to that specified by lwp. SEE ALSO
_lwp_continue(2), _lwp_suspend(2), kill(2), sigaction(2), signal(7) HISTORY
The _lwp_kill() system call first appeared in NetBSD 5.0. BSD
