! atomic compare-and-swap routines for V8+ (ultrasparc)
! ======================================================================
! Perform the sequence *a = b atomically with respect to previous value
! of a (a0). If *a==a0 then assign *a to b, all in one atomic operation.
! Returns 1 if assignment happened, and 0 otherwise.
! usage : old_val = compare_and_swap(address, oldval, newval)
! -----------------------
! as this is a LEAF procedure, a new stack frame is not created;
! we use the caller stack frame so what would normally be %i (input)
! registers are actually %o (output registers). Also, we must not
! overwrite the contents of %l (local) registers as they are not
! assumed to be volatile during calls.
! So, the registers used are:
! %o0 [input] - the address of the value to increment
! %o1 [input] - the old value to compare with
! %o2 [input] - the new value to set for [%o0]
! %o3 [local] - work register
! -----------------------
! ======================================================================
! v8plus
.inline NativeCompareAndSwap,3
cas [%o0],%o1,%o2 ! compare *w with old value and set to new if equal
cmp %o1,%o2 ! did we succeed?
be,a 1f ! yes
mov 1,%o0 ! return true (annulled when no jump)
mov 0,%o0 ! return false
! end
! ======================================================================
