    Command:

    swapcontext

    
    
    
    

    SYNOPSIS

           int sys_swapcontext (struct ucontext *old_ctx,
                                struct ucontext *new_ctx, int r5, int r6, int r7,
                                int r8, struct pt_regs *regs);
    
    
    

    DESCRIPTION

           swapcontext swaps out context old_ctx with new context new_ctx. The int
           r# values have no place in the system call functionality. The regs val-
           ue indicates the current user register values from the user stack.
    
    
    

    RETURN VALUE

           swapcontext returns 0 on success; otherwise, swapcontext returns one of
           the errors listed in the "Errors" section.
    
    
    

    ERRORS

           -EFAULT
                  swapcontext could not verify that the memory area pointed to  by
                  old_ctx or new_ctx was accessible for the operation.
    
           -SIGSEGV
                  A fault occurred when the context was being copied into the ker-
                  nel's image of the user's registers. The should only occur in an
                  out-of-memory situation.
