Use TBB in Linux Kernel Space

Use TBB in Linux Kernel Space

Hi, I am trying to write a Linux device dirver. I want to know whether or not TBB libraries can be used in kernel-space other than user-space?

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

TBB was designed for the user space, and was never tested in the kernel space. Internally it uses pthreads, which as far as I know cannot be used in kernel space. Therefore - no, TBB cannot be used for Linux driver development.
