Code Snippet

Since I won't have much time after today, before Wednesday to get a lot of coding in (exams come first), I thought I'd at least post the bits of aarch64 assembler code that I've managed to template out on my machine.

It's not too much, and I think I might need to edit a line or two of it so far, but it's coming along. I guess this is like my rough draft:

#if defined(__aarch64__) || defined(__arm64__)

#ifndef __ARCH_AARCH64_ATOMIC__
#define __ARCH_AARCH64_ATOMIC__

#define SMP_LOCK “lock ; ”
#define SMP_LOCK "”

typedef struct {volatile int counter;} atomic_t;

#define ATOMIC_INIT(I) { (i) }

#define atomic_read(v)  ((v)->counter)

#define atomic_set(v,i)  (((v)->counter) = (i))

static __inline__ void atomic_add(int i, atomic_t *v)
    __asm__ __volatile__(
           SMP_LOCK “add  x1, x0, x0“
            :“=m” (v->counter)
            :"ir” (i), “m” (v->counter))    ; - this needs fixing/porting to proper aarch64

static __inline__ void atomic_sub(int i, atomic_t *v)
    __asm__ __volatile__(
            SMP_LOCK “sub x2, x1“
            : “=m” (v->counter)
            :"ir” (i), “m” (v->counter));
