Date: Wed, 14 Jan 2015 23:33:15 -0500 From: Rich Felker <dalias@...c.org> To: musl@...ts.openwall.com Subject: First draft of new synccall, seems to be working I just wrote the first draft of the new __synccall, used for multithreaded set*id(). All the concepts seem sound and seem to be working. It's missing the code to block creation of unboundedly more threads while __synccall is running, but otherwise everything's in place. Both the /proc/self/task processing logic and the PI futex logic seem to be working as expected. I haven't yet tested in the presence of multiple realtime priorities where there's a risk of some threads never getting a chance to run; I need a framework with a high-RT-prio supervisor process to kill the test if it runs too long, because I don't want to be rebooting boxes over and over to test. :) Attached is the current draft of the code, as a source file rather than a patch since the whole file is basically rewritten. Comments welcome. Rich View attachment "synccall.c" of type "text/plain" (3768 bytes)
