Subject: Re: [Caml-list] Thread and kernel 2.6 pb still there in CVS

I did again some testing, with a Caml program with 2 thread, one doing 
only float computation for a long time with no allocation. The nanosleep 
suggestion seems much better than the actual version doing nothing:

This gives the following code in systhreads/posix.c:

/* Allow re-scheduling */

value caml_thread_yield(value unit)        /* ML */
{
  struct timespec timer = { 0, 1 };

   enter_blocking_section();
   nanosleep (&timer, NULL);
   /* sched_yield();*/
   leave_blocking_section();
   return Val_unit;
}
