Spin-based reader-writer synchronization for multiprocessor real-time systems


Reader preference, writer preference, and task-fair reader-writer locks are shown to cause undue blocking in multiprocessor real-time systems. Phase-fair reader writer locks, a new class of reader-writer locks, are proposed as an alternative. Three local-spin phase-fair lock algorithms, one with constant remote-memory-reference complexity, are presented and… (More)
