thread_exit(9) abandon current thread context


In sys/param.h In sys/proc.h Ft void Fn thread_exit void


The Fn thread_exit function implements the machine independent prelude to a thread shutdown. It will not return, and will result in a call to mi_switch9 to schedule some other thread.

Fn thread_exit arranges to free all the resources of the thread, specifically the kernel stack.

To protect the runqueue(9), Fn thread_exit must be called with the sched_lock mutex held.
