Macro Definition Documentation

◆ tor_mutex_free

#define tor_mutex_free (   m)    FREE_AND_NULL(tor_mutex_t, tor_mutex_free_, (m))

Release all storage and system resources held by m.

Destroying a locked mutex is undefined behaviour. Global mutexes may be locked when they are passed to this function, because multiple threads can still access them. So we can either:

  • destroy on shutdown, and re-initialise when tor re-initialises, or
  • skip destroying and re-initialisation, using a sentinel variable. See #31735 for details.

Additionally, set the pointer m to NULL.

Function Documentation

◆ tor_locking_init()

void tor_locking_init ( void  )

Initialize the locking module, if it is not already initialized.

◆ tor_mutex_acquire()

void tor_mutex_acquire ( tor_mutex_t m)

◆ tor_mutex_free_()

void tor_mutex_free_ ( tor_mutex_t m)

Release all storage and system resources held by m.

Destroying a locked mutex is undefined behaviour. Global mutexes may be locked when they are passed to this function, because multiple threads can still access them. So we can either:

  • destroy on shutdown, and re-initialise when tor re-initialises, or
  • skip destroying and re-initialisation, using a sentinel variable. See #31735 for details.

◆ tor_mutex_init()

void tor_mutex_init ( tor_mutex_t mutex)

Initialize mutex so it can be locked. Every mutex must be set up with tor_mutex_init() or tor_mutex_new(); not both.

◆ tor_mutex_init_nonrecursive()

void tor_mutex_init_nonrecursive ( tor_mutex_t mutex)

As tor_mutex_init, but initialize a mutex suitable that may be non-recursive, if the OS supports that.

◆ tor_mutex_new()

tor_mutex_t* tor_mutex_new ( void  )

Return a newly allocated, ready-for-use mutex.

Definition at line 17 of file compat_mutex.c.

◆ tor_mutex_new_nonrecursive()

tor_mutex_t* tor_mutex_new_nonrecursive ( void  )

Return a newly allocated, ready-for-use mutex. This one might be non-recursive, if that's faster.

Definition at line 26 of file compat_mutex.c.

◆ tor_mutex_release()

void tor_mutex_release ( tor_mutex_t m)

◆ tor_mutex_uninit()

void tor_mutex_uninit ( tor_mutex_t m)

Clean up the mutex m so that it no longer uses any system resources. Does not free m. This function must only be called on mutexes from tor_mutex_init().

Destroying a locked mutex is undefined behaviour. Global mutexes may be locked when they are passed to this function, because multiple threads can still access them. So we can either:

  • destroy on shutdown, and re-initialise when tor re-initialises, or
  • skip destroying and re-initialisation, using a sentinel variable. See #31735 for details.
