 4.4.1. Adding a Process Element to the Linked List by System Software

 System software adds a new process element for each process that has work for the accelerator. The process element is added to the software-managed linked list of scheduled processes using the following sequence. The sequence outlined in Section 4.4.1.1, “Software Procedure” is only for a single system-software process managing the linked list. Additional locking and synchronization steps are necessary to allow multiple system-software processes to concurrently manage the linked list.
