11.27 CLREX

Clear Exclusive.

Syntax

CLREX{cond}

where:

cond

is an optional condition code.

Note:

cond is permitted only in Thumb code, using a preceding IT instruction. This is an unconditional instruction in ARM.

Usage

Use the CLREX instruction to clear the local record of the executing processor that an address has had a request for an exclusive access.

CLREX returns a closely-coupled exclusive access monitor to its open-access state. This removes the requirement for a dummy store to memory.

It is implementation defined whether CLREX also clears the global record of the executing processor that an address has had a request for an exclusive access.

Architectures

This ARM instruction is available in ARMv6K and above.

This 32-bit Thumb instruction is available in ARMv7 and above.

There is no 16-bit CLREX instruction in Thumb.
