Re: Robust mutexes (-rt)

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


     here is a patch that fixes the -EINTR problem and a fix for Dinakar's
simple futex deadlock test program.  When Esben's new deadlock detection
is ready I plan to use it for robust futex deadlock detection, both simple and
circular deadlock detection.
