M68K_SYNC_ICACHE(2)       System Calls Manual (m68k)       M68K_SYNC_ICACHE(2)

NAME
     m68k_sync_icache -- instruction cache synchronization

LIBRARY
     m68k Architecture Library (libm68k, -lm68k)

SYNOPSIS
     #include <&lt;sys/types.h>&gt;
     #include <&lt;m68k/sync_icache.h>&gt;

     void
     m68k_sync_icache(void *start, size_t size);

DESCRIPTION
     m68k_sync_icache() synchronizes data and instruction caches over the
     specified region.  It should be called prior to executing newly generated
     code.

     The affected address range starts at start and continues for size bytes.
     If start is 0, all the address space of the current execution thread is
     affected.  Addresses outside the specified region may be synchronized,
     too.

     The call always succeeds.

SEE ALSO
     arm_sync_icache(2)

HISTORY
     m68k_sync_icache() appeared first in NetBSD 1.4.
