[Qemu-devel] [RFC v3 11/13] Introduce exit_flush_req and tcg_excl_access

From: Alvise Rigo
Subject: [Qemu-devel] [RFC v3 11/13] Introduce exit_flush_req and tcg_excl_access_lock
Date: Fri, 10 Jul 2015 10:23:44 +0200

Introduce two new variables to synchronize the vCPUs during atomic

- exit_flush_request allows one vCPU to make an exclusive flush request for all
  the running vCPUs
- tcg_excl_access_lock is a mutex that protects all the sensible
  operations concerning atomic instruction emulation. Most of all, the
  mutex is used to protect the env->exclusive_protected_hwaddr (one
  mutex for all vCPUs).
