NAME         top

       the calling thread

SYNOPSIS         top

       #include <linux/prctl.h>  /* Definition of PR_* constants */
       #include <sys/prctl.h>

       int prctl(PR_SET_THP_DISABLE, long flag, 0L, 0L, 0L);

DESCRIPTION         top

       Set the state of the "THP disable" flag for the calling thread.
       If flag has a nonzero value, the flag is set, otherwise it is

       Setting this flag provides a method for disabling transparent
       huge pages for jobs where the code cannot be modified, and using
       a malloc hook with madvise(2) is not an option (i.e., statically
       allocated data).  The setting of the "THP disable" flag is
       inherited by a child created via fork(2) and is preserved across

RETURN VALUE         top

       On success, 0 is returned.  On error, -1 is returned, and errno
       is set to indicate the error.
