NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     m68k_sync_icache - instruction cache synchronization

LIBRARY    [Toc]    [Back]

     library ``libm68k''

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     #include <sys/types.h>
     #include <m68k/sync_icache.h>

     m68k_sync_icache(void *start, size_t size);

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     m68k_sync_icache() synchronizes data and instruction caches over the
     specified region.  It should be called prior to executing newly generated

     The affected address range starts at start and continues for size bytes.
     If start is 0, all the address space of the current execution thread is
