- operations on a synchronization object in libc_db

Synchronization objects include mutexes, condition variables, semaphores, and reader-writer locks. In the same way that thread operations use a thread handle of type td_thrhandle_t, operations on synchronization objects use a synchronization object handle of type td_synchandle_t.
The controlling process obtains synchronization object handles either by calling the function td_ta_sync_iter() to obtain handles for all synchronization objects of the target process that are known to the libc_db library of interfaces, or by mapping the address of a synchronization object in the address space of the target process to a handle by calling td_ta_map_addr2sync(3C_DB).
Not all synchronization objects that a process uses can be known to the libc_db library and returned by td_ta_sync_iter(3C_DB). A synchronization object is known to libc_db only if it has been the target of a synchronization primitive in the process (such as mutex_lock(), described on the mutex_init(3C) manual page) after td_ta_new(3C_DB) has been called to attach to the process and td_ta_sync_tracking_enable() has been called to enable synchronization object tracking.
The td_ta_sync_tracking_enable() function turns synchronization object tracking on or off for the process identified by ta_p, depending on whether on_off is 0 (off) or non-zero (on).
The td_sync_get_info() function fills in the td_syncinfo_t structure *si_p with values for the synchronization object identified by sh_p. The td_syncinfo_t structure contains the following fields:
The internal process handle identifying the target process through which this synchronization object handle was obtained. Synchronization objects may be process-private or process-shared. In the latter case, the same synchronization object may have multiple handles, one for each target process's "view" of the synchronization object.
The address of the synchronization object in this target process's address space.
The type of the synchronization variable: mutex, condition variable, semaphore, or readers-writer lock.
If si_shared_type is non-zero, this synchronization object is process-shared, otherwise it is process-private.
Flags dependent on the type of the synchronization object.
Semaphores only. The current value of the semaphore
Readers-writer locks only. The number of readers currently holding the lock, or -1, if a writer is currently holding the lock.
For mutexes only. Non-zero if and only if the mutex is currently locked.
The size of the synchronization object.
Non-zero if and only if at least one thread is blocked on this synchronization object.
For reader-writer locks only. The value is non-zero if and only if this lock is held by a writer.
PTHREAD_MUTEX_RECURSIVE mutexes only. If the mutex is held, the recursion count.
PTHREAD_PRIO_PROTECT protocol mutexes only. The priority ceiling.
Mutexes and readers-writer locks only. This is the thread holding the mutex, or the write lock, if this is a reader-writer lock. The value is NULL if no one holds the mutex or write-lock.
Mutexes only. For a locked process-shared mutex, this is the process-ID of the process containing the owning thread.
The td_sync_get_stats() function fills in the td_syncstats_t structure *ss_p with values for the synchronization object identified by sh_p. The td_syncstats_t structure contains an embedded td_syncinfo_t structure that is filled in as described above for td_sync_get_info(). In addition, usage statistics gathered since td_ta_sync_tracking_enable() was called to enable synchronization object tracking are returned in the ss_un.mutex, ss_un.cond, ss_un.rwlock, or ss_un.sema members of the td_syncstats_t structure, depending on the type of the synchronization object.
The td_sync_setstate function modifies the state of synchronization object si_p, depending on the synchronization object type. For mutexes, td_sync_setstate is unlocked if the value is 0. Otherwise it is locked. For semaphores, the semaphore's count is set to the value. For reader-writer locks, the reader count set to the value if value is >0. The count is set to write-locked if value is –1. It is set to unlocked if the value is 0. Setting the state of a synchronization object from a libc_db interface may cause the synchronization object's semantics to be violated from the point of view of the threads in the target process. For example, if a thread holds a mutex, and td_sync_setstate is used to set the mutex to unlocked, then a different thread will also be able to subsequently acquire the same mutex.
The td_sync_waiters function iterates over the set of thread handles of threads blocked on sh_p. The callback function cb is called once for each such thread handle, and is passed the thread handle and cb_data_p. If the callback function returns a non-zero value, iteration is terminated early. See td_ta_thr_iter(3C_DB).
The call returned successfully.
An invalid thread handle was passed in.
A call to one of the imported interface routines failed.
A libc_db-internal error occurred.
