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?

Thanks,

Paul

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.
