5542011-06-13 Userspace RCU 0.6.2
555 * Fix build on powerpc.
556
5572011-06-13 Userspace RCU 0.6.1
558 * Add missing headers into release tarball:
559 urcu-call-rcu-impl.h and urcu-defer-impl.h
560
5612011-06-10 Userspace RCU 0.6.0
562 * Added call_rcu() support, graciously contributed by Paul E. McKenney.
563 * Added urcu/cds.h and merged all "Concurrent Data Containers" (CDS)
564 into a single .so: liburcu-cds.so to have a single header/shared
565 object holding all concurrency-aware data containers. It provides
566 support for RCU lists, queues and stacks at the moment.
567 * liburcu 0.6.0 now allows linking a single application with multiple
568 flavors of RCU. This required a library API change which is
569 incompatible with older 0.5.x liburcu. The .so version number
570 is therefore bumped from 0 to 1 (e.g. liburcu.so.1).
571 * Added "atfork" handling API, documented in README. Only useful for
572 processes using fork() without following exec().
573 * Renaming the following files, keeping the old files (producing a
574 compiler warning):
575 urcu/uatomic_arch.h -> urcu/uatomic.h
576 urcu/urcu-futex.h -> urcu/futex.h
577 urcu/urcu_ref.h -> urcu/ref.h

585 extern void rcu_bp_after_fork_parent(void);
586 extern void rcu_bp_after_fork_child(void);
587
588 to handle fork gracefully. These disable signals and hold
589 the registry mutex across forks. (this flavor of the liburcu
590 library ("bp" for "bulletproof") is mainly used by UST, the
591 user-space tracer).
592
5932011-03-03 Userspace RCU 0.5.3
594 * Add support for older ARM single-CPU architecturess (pre-ARMv7)
595 (thanks to Jason Wessel from WindRiver).
596 * Fix ARMv7 cmm_rmb/cmm_wmb primitives (use a dmb barrier).
597 * Remove leftover list_t type from urcu/list.h (namespace cleanup).
598 * urcu_defer: handle malloc error value.
599 * Update README file to describe urcu interaction with fork() when not
600 * followed
601 by an exec() system call.

607 * Fix renaming error introduced in 0.5.0. (incomplete fix)
608
6092010-11-18 Userspace RCU 0.5.0
610 * Version 0.5.0 changes the API presented by memory model,
611 architecture abstraction and data structure primitives in
612 headers. The prefixes are, respectively:
613 - cmm_ : Concurrent Memory Model
614 - caa_ : Concurrent Architecture Abstraction
615 - cds_ : Concurrent Data Structures
616
6172010-03-04 Userspace RCU 0.4.2

621

623 * s390: compilation fix.
624
6252010-01-30 Userspace RCU 0.4.0
626 * API change: SIGURCU -> SIGRCU
627 * API changes: standardize on rcu_ prefix.
628 * API change: urcu_init -> rcu_init.
629 * urcu/config.h options renamed to CONFIG_RCU_HAVE_FENCE,
630 CONFIG_RCU_HAVE_FUTEX, CONFIG_RCU_SMP, CONFIG_RCU_COMPAT_ARCH.
631 ((moving from URCU -> RCU).
632 * library names changes: liburcu becomes the "default" version, using
633 sys_membarrier() when available, and using liburcu-mb as a
634 fallback.
635 * The signal-based liburcu is renamed from liburcu to
636 liburcu-signal. People previously using the signal-based
637 "liburcu" will automatically be moved to the "default" liburcu
638 version.
639
6402009-11-16 Userspace RCU 0.3.1
641 * Add support for sparcv9 32-bit build.

653

657
6582009-10-02 Userspace RCU 0.2.1
659 * small header dependency fix for rculist.h.
660 * new "liburcu-bp.so" : "Bulletproof RCU", made especially for
661 the UST userspace tracer. It's a library that sacrifices a bit
662 of read-side performance for automatically monitoring thread
663 creation/removal. See README for details.
664
6652009-10-01 Userspace RCU 0.2
666 * Clarify usage of rcu_cmpxchg_pointer, rcu_xchg_pointer,
