Re: nptl 0.33



Out of curiosity, when will the lastest NPTL versions show up in a RedHat release or update?

A new source drop is available at

  http://people.redhat.com/drepper/nptl/nptl-0.33.tar.bz2
   ftp://people.redhat.com/drepper/nptl/nptl-0.33.tar.bz2

These sources go along with the glibc sources in CVS as of

2003-04-01T21:00:00-0800


The main change since 0.32:


- - updated SH port. Not yet fully working.

- - PPC64 "port" (two tiny changes)

- - pthread_atfork() now in libpthread.a

- - stack alignment for threads

- - some missing ia64 edits from the last round

- - correct TSD destructor calling


The last bug might cause problems. The call to free the memory ended up being run by the wrong thread and only one round of destructor runs was ever performed. Programs using destructors with TSD might have experienced funny behavior if the destructor used TLS or any other thread-local operation (like pthread_self()). Nobody reported any problem. I found the bug by adding more tests.
