> Potential deadlock between Bundle.stop() and BundleContext.registerService()

>                 Key: FELIX-911

>          Issue Type: Bug

>             Fix For: felix-1.6.0
>         Attachments: FELIX-911.patch
> When a bundle tries to register a service (in thread T1) and the framework is at the
same time stopping the bundle (in thread T2), it may be that thread T2 holds the bundle's
lock. T1 trying to register the service is thus blocked since it cannot get the bundle lock.
> This may cause a deadlock in Felix SCR, which also works with synchronized instances:
T1 may be SCR Actor thread starting a component and registering a service and thus holding
a lock on the component instance. T2 may be the StartLevel service trying to stop the bundle,
which causes the SCR to immediately stop the component. Since the component is locked by T1,
T2 cannot acquire the lock. But since T2 already has the bundle lock, T1 cannot continue.
> The problem is, that in this concrete case it is the Component's activate() method which
registers the service and not the SCR ComponentManager (the latter deadlock situation has
been taken care of in FELIX-384).
> Looking at the code of Felix.registerService it looks like we could check for the bundle
state before holding the bundle lock (and we could recheck after
> the lock just to be sure, if needed) and thus prevent the deadlock situation.
