register a thread for epoch reclamation


Concurrency Kit (libck, -lck)


#include <ck_epoch.h>

ck_epoch_register(ck_epoch_t *epoch, ck_epoch_record_t *record, void *cl);


The ck_epoch_register(3) function associates a record object specified by the record pointer with the epoch object pointed to by epoch. Any thread or processor that will require safe memory reclamation guarantees must register a unique record object. After registration, the object pointed to by the record argument will have lifetime managed by the underlying epoch sub-system. The record object must not be destroyed after it is associated with a ck_epoch_register(3) call. An optional context pointer cl may be passed that is retrievable with the ck_epoch_record_ct(3) function.
