NAME

rt_sigsuspend - Replace the signal mask for a value with the unewset value until a signal is received  

SYNOPSIS

long sys_rt_sigsuspend (sigset_t *unewset, size_t sigsetsize, struct pt_regs regs); Opteron
long sys_rt_sigsuspend (sigset_t *unewset, size_t sigsetsize, struct pt_regs regs); pSeries
long sys_rt_sigsuspend (sigset_t *unewset, size_t sigsetsize); xSeries
long sys_rt_sigsuspend (struct pt_regs *regs, sigset_t *unewset, size_t sigsetsize); s390
 

DESCRIPTION

rt_sigsuspend replaces the signal mask for the process with the unewset value until a signal is received. sigsetsize should indicate the size of a sigset_t type. In some architectures, the struct pt_regs regs is used to indicate interrupts.  

RETURN VALUE

rt_sigsuspend always returns -1 with the EINTR value.  

ERRORS

-EINVAL
An invalid signal was specified.
-EFAULT
unewset pointed to memory that is not part of the process address.
-EITR
The system call was interrupted.
