Title Interface and execution models in the fluke kernel
Date 1998
Description We have defined and implemented a new kernel API that makes every exported operation either fully interruptible and restartable, thereby appearing atomic to the user. To achieve interruptibility, all possible states in which a thread may become blocked for a "long" time are completely representable as valid kernel API calls, without needing to retain any kerncl internal state.
