thread_write_state - write one aspect of thread state
#include <magenta/syscalls.h> #include <magenta/syscalls/debug.h> mx_status_t mx_thread_write_state( mx_handle_t handle, uint32_t kind, void* buffer, uint32_t len);
thread_write_state() writes one aspect of state of the thread. Typically this is a register set or “regset”. E.g., integer registers, floating point registers, etc. Which registers are in which regset is defined by the architecture. By convention regset 0 contains the general purpose integer registers, stack pointer, program counter, and ALU flags register if the architecture defines one. Each register set's contents is defined by a struct in magenta/syscalls/debug.h.
thread_write_state() returns MX_OK on success. In the event of failure, a negative error value is returned.
MX_ERR_BAD_HANDLE handle is not a valid handle.
MX_ERR_WRONG_TYPE handle is not that of a thread.
MX_ERR_ACCESS_DENIED handle lacks MX_RIGHT_WRITE.
MX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS kind is not valid, or buffer is an invalid pointer, or the provided len is too large.
MX_ERR_NO_MEMORY Temporary out of memory failure.
MX_ERR_BAD_STATE The thread is not stopped at a point where state is available. Typically thread state is read by an exception handler when the thread is stopped due to an exception.
MX_ERR_NOT_SUPPORTED kind is not supported. This can happen, for example, when trying to write a register set that is not supported by the h/w the program is currently running on.
MX_ERR_UNAVAILABLE kind is currently unavailable. This can happen, for example, when a regset requires the chip to be in a specific mode. The details are dependent on the architecture and regset.
