Libcaps update

Libcaps, the library for userland threading, has been updated. Work is still proceeding on fp stave/restore, and some other tasks, including Galen Sampson’s work. Matt Dillon’s commit message sums it up as neatly as possible, so I’ll just paste it:

Major update to libcaps. Implement support for virtual cpus using
rfork_thread() and implement IPIs, per-virtual-cpu globaldata areas,
and per-virtual-cpu LWKT scheduling.

    Okay, I’ve been looking for this information everywhere, but cannot find it, so I’ll ask here. What the heck is an IPI?

  2. Inter-Process Iiimumble? I remember wondering this myself, and I don’t recall if I found an answer.

    IPI seems to mean “InterProcessor Interupt.”
