Alkamist Posted January 15, 2008 Share Posted January 15, 2008 Well guys i need the help of a genius!! I have a question that i have to answer now i'm not looking necessarily for the answer but help, iv looked for weeks for the answer but i am just STUCK so here it is: The semSignal() and semWait() operations, provided as primitives by an OS kernel, are defined to be atomic. Explain how this atomicity can be provided in the following cases: a) hardware which provides test and set lock or other composite instruction b) a uniprocessor when no composite instruction is available c) a multiprocessor when no composite instruction is available thanx for any replies i appreciate it Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
