The LWP will begin execution at the function specified by .Fa start_routine which will be passed a single argument .Fa arg . The LWP private data pointer will be set to .Fa private . The stack region for the new LWP is specified by the .Fa stack_base and .Fa stack_size arguments. .Pp The signal mask in the context structure is not initialized by .Fn _lwp_makecontext . .Sh SEE ALSO .Xr _lwp_create 2 , .Xr _lwp_getprivate 2 .Sh HISTORY The .Fn _lwp_create system call first appeared in .Nx 2.0 . .Sh BUGS The LWP private data pointer is not initialized by the current implementation of .Fn _lwp_makecontext .
