THREAD_EXIT(9) MidnightBSD Kernel Developer’s Manual THREAD_EXIT(9)

NAME

thread_exit — abandon current thread context

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)
