syscalls_mutexCreate

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int *, h, 0);

Creates mutex and returns resource handle h.

syscalls_mutexLock (syscalls_phMutexLock)

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, h, 0);

Locks mutex given by handle h.

syscalls_mutexTry

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, h, 0);

Tries to lock mutex given by handle h.

syscalls_mutexUnlock

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, h, 0);

Unlocks mutex given by h.

syscalls_condCreate

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int *, h, 0);

Creates conditional variable and returns its handle in variable h.

syscalls_condWait (syscalls_phCondWait)

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, h, 0);
GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, m, 1);
GETFROMSTACK(ustack, time_t, timeout, 2);

Waits on conditional given by 'h' for number of microseconds giveb by timeout. Before suspending a calling thread execution mutex identified by m handle is unlocked to enable other thread modifying variables used to check condtionals after conditional signalisation. When conditional variable is signaled mutex m is locked.

syscalls_condSignal

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, h, 0);

Signals conditional given by h.

syscalls_condBroadcast

GETFROMSTACK(ustack, unsigned int, h, 0);

Signals conditional to all waiting threads.
