How would Cilk be implemented? We talked about that it is different from pthreads in that it does not have context switching overhead and does not decrease locality for cache. My understanding is that Cilk has #threads = #cores, and threads get work from work pool concurrently. Although we may have multiple spawns, maximum number of threads is fixed. Is this right?
