Re: PTHREAD_THREADS_MAX missing?

Has anyone run LTP against nptl recently?

The ltp-20030324 version compile of trace_sched.c fails because
PTHREAD_THREADS_MAX is not defined. Linuxthreads defines this in
/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/bits/local_lim.h

Should nptl define this (or similar) symbol? Or should this sort of thing be
defined only in kernel headers (include/linux/threads.h)?


nptl has no hardcoded thread limits, see tst-sysconf.c.  The kernel
doesn't have a hardcoded number of threads (well, except PID_MAX)
aswell.

Furthermore, Posix does not require PTHREAD_THREADS_MAX be defined; see http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/007904975/basedefs/pthread.h.html

Looks like LTP needs to change trace_sched.c to be more posix-compliant.
