Module std::intrinsics [−][src]
🔬 This is a nightlyonly experimental API. (core_intrinsics
)
intrinsics are unlikely to ever be stabilized, instead they should be used through stabilized interfaces in the rest of the standard library
rustc compiler intrinsics.
The corresponding definitions are in librustc_codegen_llvm/intrinsic.rs.
Volatiles
The volatile intrinsics provide operations intended to act on I/O memory, which are guaranteed to not be reordered by the compiler across other volatile intrinsics. See the LLVM documentation on [volatile].
Atomics
The atomic intrinsics provide common atomic operations on machine words, with multiple possible memory orderings. They obey the same semantics as C++11. See the LLVM documentation on [atomics].
A quick refresher on memory ordering:
 Acquire  a barrier for acquiring a lock. Subsequent reads and writes take place after the barrier.
 Release  a barrier for releasing a lock. Preceding reads and writes take place before the barrier.
 Sequentially consistent  sequentially consistent operations are
guaranteed to happen in order. This is the standard mode for working
with atomic types and is equivalent to Java's
volatile
.
