NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       lock_init - General: Initializes a complex lock

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

       #include <kern/lock.h>

       void lock_init(
               lock_t lock_structptr,
               boolean_t can_sleep );

ARGUMENTS    [Toc]    [Back]

       Specifies  a  pointer to the complex lock structure, lock.
       The lock structure is an opaque data structure;  that  is,
       its  associated  members are referenced and manipulated by
       the operating system and not by the user  of  the  complex
       lock  mechanism.  Specifies a Boolean value that indicates
       whether to allow kernel threads to block  (sleep)  if  the
       complex  lock  is  asserted. You can pass to this argument
       only the value TRUE (allow kernel threads to block if  the
       lock is asserted).

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  lock_init  routine  initializes  a complex lock.  You
       identify this lock by declaring a  pointer  to  a  complex
       lock  structure  and passing it as the first argument. The
       complex lock structure pointer must be initialized  before
       you  can  assert  read and write operations on the complex
