7.8.1 SystemC Export limitation on reentrancy

Processor models, and the CCI400, MMU_400, and MMU_500 component models support reentrancy.

Reentrancy occurs when a component in an EVS issues a blocking transaction to a SystemC peripheral that in turn generates another blocking transaction back into the same component. This generation might come directly or indirectly from a call to wait() or by another SystemC peripheral.

Virtual platforms including EVSs that comprise a processor model do support such reentrancy.

For models that do not support reentrancy, the virtual platform might show unpredictable behavior because of racing within the EVS component.
