LWP_CACHE_CREDS(9)         Kernel Developer's Manual        LWP_CACHE_CREDS(9)

     LWP_CACHE_CREDS - synchronize LWP credential with process credential

     #include <sys/lwp.h>

     LWP_CACHE_CREDS(lwp_t *l, struct proc *p);

     LWP_CACHE_CREDS() updates the LWP's cached credential to match with the
     process' credential if the latter has been changed after the last

     Each LWPs have its cached credential so that it can be used without
     worrying about potential of other LWP changing the process' credential.
     kauth_cred_get() returns the cached credential.

     LWP_CACHE_CREDS() is called by MD entry code for system call and various
     traps.  LWPs which can live in kernel for long period should call
     LWP_CACHE_CREDS() by itself to refresh its credential.

     LWP_CACHE_CREDS() takes the following arguments.

     l  The calling lwp.

     p  The process which the lwp l belongs to.

     LWP_CACHE_CREDS() might be implemented as a macro.
