Emergence of chip multiprocessors has created a need for exploitation of beyond DOALL-type thread-level parallelism (TLP). This calls for development of efficient thread synchronization techniques to exploit TLP in general parallel programs with dependences. For this, several thread synchronization techniques have been proposed in the past. However, these limit the exploitation of fine-grain TLP due to large run-time overhead. Furthermore, the existing approaches can potentially result in (i… CONTINUE READING
