    Command:

    set_thread_area

    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           #include <linux/unistd.h>
           #include <asm/ldt.h>
    
           int set_thread_area(struct user_desc *u_info);
    
           Note: There is no glibc wrapper for this system call; see NOTES.
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           set_thread_area()  sets  an  entry in the current thread's thread-local
           storage (TLS) array.  The TLS array entry set by set_thread_area() cor-
           responds  to  the  value of u_info->entry_number passed in by the user.
           If this value is in bounds, set_thread_area() copies the TLS descriptor
           pointed to by u_info into the thread's TLS array.
    
           When  set_thread_area() is passed an entry_number of -1, it uses a free
           TLS entry.  If set_thread_area() finds a free TLS entry, the  value  of
           u_info->entry_number  is  set  upon  return  to  show  which  entry was
           changed.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           set_thread_area() returns 0 on success, and -1 on failure,  with  errno
           set appropriately.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           EINVAL u_info->entry_number is out of bounds.
    
           EFAULT u_info is an invalid pointer.
    
           ESRCH  A free TLS entry could not be located.
    
    
    

    VERSIONS

           A version of set_thread_area() first appeared in Linux 2.5.29.
    
    
    

    CONFORMING TO

           set_thread_area()  is Linux-specific and should not be used in programs
           that are intended to be portable.
    
    
    

    NOTES

           Glibc does not provide a wrapper for this system call, since it is gen-
           erally  intended  only for use by threading libraries.  In the unlikely
           event that you want to call it directly, use syscall(2).
