KPREEMPT(9)            NetBSD Kernel Developer's Manual            KPREEMPT(9)


NAME
kpreempt -- control kernel preemption
SYNOPSIS
#include <sys/systm.h> void kpreempt_disable(void); void kpreempt_enable(void); bool kpreempt_disabled(void);
DESCRIPTION
These functions are used to control kernel preemption of the calling LWP. On architectures where kernel preemption is not supported natively, these functions may still be used. kpreempt_disable() disables kernel preemption of the calling LWP. Note that disabling kernel preemption can prevent LWPs with higher priorities from running. kpreempt_enable() enables kernel preemption of the calling LWP, which was previously disabled by kpreempt_disable(). kpreempt_disable() and kpreempt_enable() can be nested. kpreempt_disabled() returns true if preemption of the calling LWP is dis- abled. It's for diagnostic purpose.
