<p><b>Abstract</b>—The circular list-based mutual exclusion algorithm proposed by Fu and Tzeng [<ref rid="bibl04141" type="bib">1</ref>] is subject to a race condition that leads to a deadlock under subtle situations. An execution sequence evidences the race, and a modified version is provided. The performance of the original algorithm remains unchanged.</p>
Critical sections, race conditions, deadlocks, atomic instructions.
