Access unprivileged regions from OS


Andrea Mondelli <andrea.mondelli@...>
 

Hi all,

quoting the arm manual, "sometimes the OS does need to access unprivileged regions, for example, to write to a buffer owned by an application. To support this, the instruction set provides the LDTR and STTR instructions."
According to the Volume II: RISC-V Privileged Architectures Chapter 7, In RISCV we don't have any similar privileged instruction to do it.

There is an alternative way to have the same behavior? I was thinking other examples like checking user parameters when syscall are called.
Any hints?

thanks in advance
