Subject [jira] Created: (ZOOKEEPER-319) add locking around auth info in zhandle_t

add locking around auth info in zhandle_t

                 Key: ZOOKEEPER-319
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/ZOOKEEPER-319
             Project: Zookeeper
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: c client
    Affects Versions: 3.1.0, 3.0.1, 3.0.0
            Reporter: Chris Darroch
             Fix For: 3.1.1, 3.2.0

Looking over the zookeeper.c code it appears to me that the zoo_add_auth() function may be
called at any time by the user in their "main" thread.  This function alters the elements
of the auth_info structure in the zhandle_t structure.

Meanwhile, the IO thread may read those elements at any time in such functions as send_auth_info()
and auth_completion_func().  It seems important, then, to add a lock which prevents data being
read by the IO thread while only partially changed by the user's thread.  The attached patch
add such a lock.
