futex_wait - Wait on a futex.
#include <zircon/syscalls.h> zx_status_t zx_futex_wait(const zx_futex_t* value_ptr, int32_t current_value, zx_time_t deadline);
futex_wait() atomically verifies that value_ptr still contains the value current_value and sleeps until the futex is made available by a call to
zx_futex_wake. Optionally, the thread can also be woken up after the deadline (with respect to ZX_CLOCK_MONOTONIC) passes.
A component that uses futexes should be prepared to handle spurious wakeups. A spurious wakeup is a situation where futex_wait() returns successfully even though the component did not wake the waiter by calling futex_wake().
Zircon's implementation of futexes currently does not generate spurious wakeups itself. However, commonly-used algorithms that use futexes can sometimes generate spurious wakeups. For example, the usual implementation of
mutex_unlock can potentially produce a futex_wake() call on a memory location after the location has been freed and reused for unrelated purposes.
futex_wait() returns ZX_OK on success.
ZX_ERR_INVALID_ARGS value_ptr is not a valid userspace pointer, or value_ptr is not aligned.
ZX_ERR_BAD_STATE current_value does not match the value at value_ptr.
ZX_ERR_TIMED_OUT The thread was not woken before deadline passed.
