want ps_lwphandle-specific reg routines
lib - userland libraries
libproc(3PROC) provides routines for getting at the registers of a given thread within a proccess, through routines like
Plwp_getxregs(). There are two caveats wit these as they stand right now:
- They require the entire process to be stopped before you can read from them. This is a larger requirement than /proc requires. It only needs an individual thread to be stopped.
- Internally, libproc caches the state of the
lwpstatusfile for individual threads that one has performed an
Lgrab()for and for the corresponding representative lwp as part of the
pr_lwpmember of the
statusfile. While the latter is kept up to date with writes that are done, the thread-specific handles are not. In particular a thread could have had outstanding changes to its general purpose registers as a result of someone calling
This change introduces analogues to the
Plwp_setXXX functions in the form of
LsetXXX. It also ensures that the thread handles are updated to cover cache invalidations and that everything is synced out.
