[Xen-devel] [PATCH 0/8] libxl: event: Fix hang for some applications

Posted by Ian Jackson 36 weeks ago
The meat here, including a description of the bug, is in:
  libxl: event: Fix hang when mixing blocking and eventy calls

I have compiled this but not tested it.  We do not have a good test
suite for this event stuff.  (And races etc are hard to test.)
George, can you check to see whether it fixes the issue you saw ?

If so then I suggest we try to convince ourselves of its correctness
via a second round of code review.  I will certainly want to read it
all again after the weekend, since then I will hopefully have
forgotten enough about this to make that a worthwhile exercise.

Ian Jackson (8):
  libxl: event: Rename poller.fds_changed to .fds_deregistered
  libxl: event: Rename ctx.pollers_fd_changed to .pollers_active
  libxl: event: Introduce CTX_UNLOCK_EGC_FREE
  libxl: event: Fix hang when mixing blocking and eventy calls
  libxl: event: poller pipe optimisation
  libxl: event: Break out baton_wake
  libxl: event: Fix possible hang with libxl_osevent_beforepoll
  libxl: event: Move poller pipe emptying to the end of afterpoll
