  man pages->FreeBSD man pages -> thread_exit (9)              



NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     thread_exit -- abandon current thread context

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/proc.h>


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     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    [Toc]    [Back]

     mi_switch(9), msleep(9), mutex(9), runqueue(9)
