Subject [jira] [Commented] (HADOOP-7824) Native IO uses wrong constants almost everywhere
Date Thu, 07 May 2015 21:57:01 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-7824?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14533459#comment-14533459

Alan Burlison commented on HADOOP-7824:

I've prototyped an alternate fix for this, which is to remove 'final' from the public static
members used to hold the various O_ constants defined in NativeIO.java but otherwise to leave
them alone, then use a JNI_OnLoad hook to update the values of the public static members to
the correct platform-specific values. Looking at the classfile disassembly it will be slightly
slower than at present - the existing public static final members are inlined to either sipush
or ldc of the appropriate constant values whereas if the final modifier is removed (needed
to prevent the inlining) then getstatic is used to fetch the value. However it should still
be significantly faster than the string-based approach suggested in the latest patch attached
to this bug. If this approach is acceptable please let me know and I'll get a patch sorted

I'm specifically interested in fixing this for Solaris but it should work on all platforms.
