Description

Excerpt from Efficient Synchronization Algorithms Using Fetch and Add on Multiple Bitfield Integers Harrison (see [harrison 86, has proposed the use of combining positive bitfield increments to special add and x processors which would have been substituted for memory. These add and x processors would directly support synchronizations primitives. The value returned by an add and x operation would indicate the state of some lock rather than the actual value of a memory cell modified by fetch-and-add. In contrast, the algorithms presented in this paper do not utilize any special hardware except fetch-and - add.
