Yes, but it is a wanted feature, so I wouldn't mind it getting done. It was even part of the standard prior to POSIX 2008, and the reason for removing it was stupid. (The reason was that the makecontext function's calling convention is bogus and impossible to support properly, but they could have fixed this by deprecating the use of the variadic arguments in any way except passing a single void* argument, rather than deprecating the whole set of interfaces.) > the go runtime in the gcc tree should be fixed to have a fallback > when this functionality is missing (if possible), > so it maybe be needed to ask on the go mailing list. The only fallback is to use C11 or POSIX threads in place of coroutines, or shipping their own set/getcontext code for each arch... Rich
