Subject [jira] Commented: (HADOOP-7156) getpwuid_r is not thread-safe on RHEL6
Date Wed, 09 Mar 2011 00:15:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7156?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13004300#comment-13004300

Allen Wittenauer commented on HADOOP-7156:
------------------------------------------

Considering how little has changed since Apache 0.20.0 was released almost two years, not
many because there was no need.

This JIRA is a great example of something that will likely be long fixed before an actual
Apache release with the fix sees the light of day.  Which is why I'm mostly opposed to it
going in, but not enough to -1 it.  I think we'll look like fools when a year down the road
we have a reference to a bug that was long fixed, but whatever.

In other words, "Who gives a damn about the people who are not running some form of trunk
and are not watching JIRAs religiously."

> Due to the following bug in SSSD, functions like getpwuid_r are not thread-safe in RHEL
6.0 if sssd is specified in /etc/nsswitch.conf (as it is by default):
> https://fedorahosted.org/sssd/ticket/640
> This causes many fetch failures in the case that the native libraries are available,
since the SecureIO functions call getpwuid_r as part of fstat. By enabling -Xcheck:jni I get
the following trace on JVM crash:
> *** glibc detected *** /mnt/toolchain/JDK6u20-64bit/bin/java: free(): invalid pointer:
0x0000003575741d23 ***
> ======= Backtrace: =========
