NAME

       __ppc_yield, __ppc_mdoio, __ppc_mdoom - Hint the processor to release shared resources

SYNOPSIS

       #include <sys/platform/ppc.h>

       void __ppc_yield(void);
       void __ppc_mdoio(void);
       void __ppc_mdoom(void);

DESCRIPTION

       These  functions  provide  hints  about  the usage of resources that are shared with other
       processors on the Power architecture.  They can be used, for example, if a program waiting
       on a lock intends to divert the shared resources to be used by other processors.

       __ppc_yield()  provides  a  hint  that  performance  will  probably  be improved if shared
       resources dedicated to the executing processor are released for use by other processors.

       __ppc_mdoio() provides a hint  that  performance  will  probably  be  improved  if  shared
       resources  dedicated to the executing processor are released until all outstanding storage
       accesses to caching-inhibited storage have been completed.

       __ppc_mdoom() provides a hint  that  performance  will  probably  be  improved  if  shared
       resources  dedicated to the executing processor are released until all outstanding storage
       accesses to cacheable storage for which the data is not in the cache have been completed.

VERSIONS

       These functions first appeared in glibc in version 2.18.
