thread_exit — abandon current thread context
#include <sys/param.h> #include <sys/proc.h> void thread_exit(void);
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.
