We propose a cooperative methodology for multithreaded software, where threads use traditional synchronization idioms such as locks, but additionally document each point of potential thread interference with a "yield" annotation. Under this methodology, code between two successive yield annotations forms a serializable transaction that is amenable to sequential reasoning. This methodology reduces the burden of reasoning about thread interleavings by indicating only those interference points… CONTINUE READING
