Sample text

The common IPC mechanisms are shared memory, message passing, and semaphores. A process creates a segment of shared memory that tells the CPU what changes have occurred. Messages are queued with a head and a tail. That is, a message is packed on the tail of the queue and is received on the head. Each message contains a 32-bit type value followed by a data payload. Semaphores are integer-valued objects that support an increment or decrement of the value of the integer. Processes can sleep on semaphores greater than zero, then awaken when the value reaches zero.

This function may be used to preempt the dispatcher if a thread needs to signal a thread running on another process to enter kernel mode. The delivery of a signal may require interrupting a thread on another processor. The kernel can send an interrupt or trap to start or stop /proc threads on different processors. The kernel also employs a cross-call. Cross-calls are part of the processor-dependent implementation and are used to execute a specific low-level function processor to processor. Besides implementing interprocessor interrupts, cross-calls can maintain virtual memory translation consistency by issuing an unmap operation via the CPU on which the thread has run.

Software traps are initiated by the trap instruction, tcc. Software traps are used primarily for system calls in the Solaris kernel. There are also several fast system calls that act as their own trap. These system calls pass their arguments back and forth via the registers.
