CONFIG_SWAP_NONATOMIC

(No prompt – not directly user assignable.)

Type: bool

Help

On some architectures, the _Swap() primitive cannot be made atomic with respect to the irq_lock being released. That is, interrupts may be received between the entry to _Swap and the completion of the context switch. There are a handful of workaround cases in the kernel that need to be enabled when this is true. Currently, this only happens on ARM when the PendSV exception priority sits below that of Zephyr-handled interrupts.

Defaults

No defaults. Implicitly defaults to n.
