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

ras_lookup, ras_fork, ras_purgeall -- restartable atomic sequences SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/types.h> #include <sys/proc.h> #include <sys/ras.h> void * ras_lookup(struct proc *p, void *addr); int ras_fork(struct proc *p1, struct proc *p2); int ras_purgeall(struct proc *p); DESCRIPTION
Restartable atomic sequences are user code sequences which are guaranteed to execute without preemption. This property is assured by check- ing the set of restartable atomic sequences registered for a process during cpu_switchto(9). If a process is found to have been preempted during a restartable sequence, then its execution is rolled-back to the start of the sequence by resetting its program counter saved in its process control block (PCB). The RAS functionality is provided by a combination of the machine-independent routines discussed in this page and a machine-dependent compo- nent in cpu_switchto(9). A port which supports restartable atomic sequences will define __HAVE_RAS in <machine/types.h> for machine-indepen- dent code to conditionally provide RAS support. A complicated side-effect of restartable atomic sequences is their interaction with the machine-dependent ptrace(2) support. Specifically, single-step traps and/or the emulation of single-stepping must carefully consider the effect on restartable atomic sequences. A general solution is to ignore these traps or disable them within restartable atomic sequences. FUNCTIONS
The functions which operate on restartable atomic sequences are: ras_lookup(p, addr) This function searches the registered restartable atomic sequences for process p which contain the user address addr. If the address addr is found within a RAS, then the restart address of the RAS is returned, otherwise -1 is returned. ras_fork(p1, p2) This function is used to copy all registered restartable atomic sequences for process p1 to process p2. It is primarily called from fork1(9) when the sequences are inherited from the parent by the child. ras_purgeall(p) This function is used to remove all registered restartable atomic sequences for process p. It is primarily used to remove all reg- istered restartable atomic sequences for a process during exec(3) and by rasctl(2). CODE REFERENCES
The RAS framework itself is implemented within the file sys/kern/kern_ras.c. Data structures and function prototypes for the framework are located in <sys/ras.h>. Machine-dependent portions are implemented within cpu_switchto(9) in the machine-dependent file sys/arch/<arch>/<arch>/locore.S. SEE ALSO
